PeePul Pals, 1967

Here are a few pages from a little book of gender-role education that I was given as a wee child. It’s called The PeePul Pals Book, and was published in 1967.

As you can see, it contains every career option a girl could wish for:

stewardess… nurse…
StewardessAirplane

ballerina…

StageBallerina

bride…

BrideBride

mommy…

NurseryBaby

and, of course, baby.

Goodbye!

Aren’t the illustrations cute, though? They’re by John Johnson.
