I'm sharing another book from my childhood collection today. Baby Cheerful Tearful (the authorized edition, no less) was published in 1968 and was written by Melissa Dow Funk. It's a very colorful, simple, and girlie story of a girl named Ann and her Cheerful Tearful doll. Ann asks her mother how to make Cheerful Tearful happy. Her mother relays how she made Ann happy when she was a baby.
In case you're not familiar with Cheerful Tearful, she was a popular baby doll manufactured by Mattel back in the 60s. When you lowered her arm, she makes a pouty face. I always wanted one, but alas, only got the book. My daughter loved the book when she was younger so I bought a Cheerful Tearful doll from Ebay. She pays no attention to it!! Someday, I'll resell it, I guess.
A careful observer might notice little indents on the book's cover. Those were made by the beloved black Lab that I grew up with, Toby. His teeth marks are on several of my old books.
Enjoy (Toby did!)
