Here is an excerpt of the story from the book: “…the little girls began to cook their dinner. It was great fun, Mary thought; indeed, she liked it almost better than playing with Dolly. She mixed the pancakes, while Bertha warmed the soup upon her little toy stove. “It is boiling splendidly already!” said she, before Mary had finished; – and that was all the more surprising, because – to tell you a secret – there was no fire in the stove! But “making believe very much” will do wonders, as I dare say you have found.”  black and white clip art, Oscar pletsch engraving, Victorian girls printable, little cooks storybook illustration, girls cooking clip art, vintage children in kitchen imageThe illustration is from Little Folks and Little Friends by Oscar Pletsch, circa 1880.
