    HERE YOU HAVE A RARE CHILDREN'S BOOKLET PEICE OF HISTORY THAT WAS CREATED FOR THE PILLSBURY WASHBURN FLOUR MILLS CO. MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA IN 1902. "A TRIP TO EGYPT BY DREAMLAND BABIES" BERTHA CORBETT MELCHER DRAWINGS WERE SHOWN TO EDWIN OSGOOD GROVER WHO THEN SHOWED TO HIS SISTER (EULALIE OSGOOD GROVER) WHO WAS A FORMER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER, SHE HAD BEGUN A NEW CAREER WRITTING BOOKS FOR CHILDREN. SHE LIKED CORBETT'S DESIGNS AND SUGGESTED THAT THEY COLLABORATE ON A BOOK. THE SUNBONNETT BABIES WERE BORN, AND IN 1902 ALONG CAME THIS RARE ADVERTISING MATERIAL FOR THE ART LITERATURE READERS AND COORESPONDENCE. VITO'S WHEAT FOOD BECAME PILLSBURY'S BEST WHEAT CEREAL IN 1908. THIS WAS FUN RESEARCHING AND EVEN MORE FUN TO OWN. HAS ANYONE SEE THIS BEFORE???
