Sliker Description

The front cover pictures two children finding Mother Rabbit reading to two little bunnies in the woods behind a farm house. Framing the picture is an orange wheat stalk on the left and a partial stalk at the top. The title is above the picture in blue ink. The back cover has a similar orange wheat frame around a picture of a box of Wheaties cereal, a bowl, and a pitcher of milk on a yellow background. The inside is a story about Tom and Sue going to Wheatie-Land with the Bunnikins and bringing home Wheaties to their family. Included inside is a sheet of Wheaties testimonials on one side and an order blank for Wheaties in Bunnieland on the other side.

Historical Note: Little Cookbooks contains thousands of food and cookery related publications produced primarily by companies in the United States from the late nineteenth century up to the present. The collection provides a rich resource to study the evolution and history of advertising, food products, individual companies, technology, food preparation, and food production. It was organized, described, and donated in 2005 by Shirley Brocker Sliker, who continues to add items to the collection. In 2006 the Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Library Endowment was established to enhance Little Cookbooks through acquisitions, conservation, digitization, and dissemination endeavors. Thanks to this generosity, efforts are now underway to describe and when possible digitize and create a fully searchable freely available online collection. Little Cookbooks is an ongoing project. New items from various companies are being scanned regularly. The images of these items are added to the site after quality assurance and copyright permission checks have been performed. Please visit Special Collections, Michigan State University Libraries, to see the print copy if it is not available electronically.
