Children's PlayMate, May 1942


There was a lot to worry about in May 1942 as the country got on a war footing. 

The paper in Children's PlayMate was more pulpy, as paper was saved for the war effort. But this beautiful Fern Bisel Peat cover showed a gentler world, still going 'round.

A colorful paper doll  by Peat graces the centerfold in the same issue.
