I have an ex-library copy as I wasn't so much concerned about the collectible nature of this book as for the content that establishes a child's wardrobe in the early1960s. You can still find copies of this book as they are not very scarce.
I was a young teen when I found this book, and the only parts of this book that held any fascination for me then and now are in the last two chapters, Wardrobe and Clothes. The last two chapters about Jean Ellen's 1960s little girl wardrobe discuss what she wore, the different outfits she wore on various occasions, and how she took care of her clothes.
One of my favorite pages is about how Mary Ellen took care of her gloves because my mother told me that her mother taught her to wash out her white gloves after each use.
So here are some of the pages that teach us what many (middle-class) young girls wore in the early 1960s. Click on the photos to enlarge them so you can read the text:
