Some erronously think the sister's panties showing in the illustrations. They are not, they are bloomers which girls used to wear so that their panties *didn't* show. Bloomers were worn under dresses over underwear so that little girls could run and play *not* show their painties. I have often wished I could find them now for my little girls who love wearing dresses (even though I never wear them). Bloomers are basically pretty shorts.
I have read the book so many times I have it memorized and I can't recall any ominous injuries (another concern I saw posted). A boy got a tiny cut on a metal toy, and a father got a cut on a manual lawnmower blade. Nothing ominous in either case. Additionally, the sister, dog and doll all had pretend injuries, or old scraps that they wanted band-aids on, just like children of today.
Lastly, I found nothing sexist about this book. The mother was wearing a dress, but women did back then. Women do today, too. The mother helped her child feel better, which to my knowledge, mother's of today still do. The father, on his day off of work, mowed the lawn. I believe that both men women mow lawns today. The book does not say that only father could or that the mother was doing 'woman work' or anything of the sort. Many fathers of today mow lawns on the weekend. Lastly, the brother and sister were playing together, not sexist either!
For the record, I grew up in the 80's and I am a mother. There may have been sexist attitudes in the 50's, but to find them in the book, you have to put things into it that aren't there, and children do not do that. I think it is a very enjoyable book for parents and children alike. I know my children (of both genders) love this book.
The story covers everything from working, playing, helping out, and comforting, and just having fun. A GREAT little book for children. Would be cute in a doctor's office waiting room, or on any child's personal library.

The paper and cardboard quality of the book is not very good and it doesn't feel like other Golden Books. Maybe the official printer of Golden Books doesn't make this one? Read morePublished 21 days ago by Cyndi
