Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

[Monday Through Sunday Activities]


This is a die-cut Monday through Sunday trade card. It features a drawn illustration of a little girl for each day of the week along with six different products and a poem about each day's activities. Thursday, the center section, does not feature a certain product. This is the day an individual is suppose to go to the store and purchase more Ralston-Purina Goods. The back of the trade card consists of titles and promotions on seven separate sections. The first section is titled "Ralston Breakfast Food" and the last section is titled "Purina Health Flour." At the bottom, the phrase "All products are cleanly and carefully milled at Purina Mills, "Where Purity Is Paramount," St. Louis, MO."
