Sing along with Khrushchov coloring book, an update

Eight months ago I posted about a coloring book published in 1962 titled The Sing Along with Khrushchov Coloring Book. I noted that, although I had come across references to the book in newspapers, I hadn't been able to find any images of it online. Nor were there any used copies for sale. And only two libraries in the U.S. had copies of it. It was really obscure!

But I was just contacted by Elaine Woodward who revealed that her grandfather, who was on the American Hungarian Federation in DC, had once given her a copy, which she still had. She was kind enough to scan it and send it to me. So here it is, rescued from obscurity!

I've posted two sample images below. Or click here to read the whole thing (pdf file).

Note that the book spells Khrushchev with an 'o' rather than an 'e'... so the title was misspelled in my original post.

A big thank you to Elaine Woodward for sending the scanned book file to Alex. An interesting read to say the least. And to Alex for the follow-up and link to the pdf of the book.

"I hear the poor women in America have a very hard life. They have to stand for hours in spiked-heel shoes at some kind of tribal rite called a cocktail party, and if they want to take a little rest they have to hire a couch for a lot of money from a kind of witch doctor called psychiatrist."

The saddest thing is, there are still people in the USA (and England, I might add, and probably a few in my own country as well) who really do believe that this was how people in the Soviet Union thought.
