Farm Friends - Real Live Animal Book

Rand McNally, 1956
My time today is short, so I'll phrase this post accordingly. Old children's books that use photographs to tell a story are awesome. Old children's books that use photographs of baby animals? Even more awesome. (Even better when dressed up and put in ridiculous situations.)
Witness the awesomeness of these Farm Friends (part of the Real Life Animal Book Series) as they cuddle their way through 12 pages of Rand McNally Elf book adorableness.
Our papa crowed excitedly
When we began to hatch.
Our mama clucked importantly,
"My, what a lovely batch!"
Created in an era where I certainly can't say "no animals were harmed in the making of this story", I have to turn the other cheek and assume that piglet's smile tells me all I need to know.
