Tiny Tot's First Book / I Want to Read

This is two books in one, bound together: pages 1 to 64 are Tiny Tot's First Book and then pages 1 to 64 again are I Want to Read. This book uses a single line drawing by Blampied of people riding elephants at the zoo which was probably meant for The Zoo Book but was not included. Rides on elephants were stopped at London Zoo in about 1960.
