This charming black and white vintage illustration has a little girl reading to her friends. The oldest child in her audience is sewing, while another cradles her doll and a third watches closely.
The home book for very little people, their brothers and sisters, their mothers and teachers was the source for a number of vintage images here on Reusable Art. It was published in 1887 by Phillips & Hunt without identifying an illustrator or author.
