Juvenile hardback In response to many queries by children, the author created a "Good Times Book," such as Betty kept, which was published in this beautiful format uniform with the Little Colonel series and also in white kid. Her eight pages of advice on keeping a journal are reflected in the design of this book. Dated pages are "an intolerable bore"; here are no dates so that a child can write at length "only when you've something you want to keep." There is no lock, as "feelings and self-analysis are as out of place as they would be on the playground," and the result would probably be pitched into the fire in disgust. "Put out of mind the thought that someone else may read what you have written . the one that may be someday worth a fortune to you is one kept simply in the squirrel-fashion of nutgathering time." and the little squirrel borders are a reminder.
