THE STORY OF LIFE
This little story is lovingly dedicated to the little children of America….that thousands of other little girls and boys might go through life, guarded as they should be, against that great pitfall or handicap—sex ignorance. Meant to be a simple, yet direct explanation of the “facts of life,” the chapters cover such things as “how life began,” “ how our babies come into the world,” and “taking care of your body.” Mrs. Anglund’s illustrations depict the growth of the embryo, a mother holding her baby, or changing the diaper while grandma looks on.
