After all, this book is now 71 yrs old - and has been to China, to India, and all over the USA. The pages are all coming out of the book and the edges of each page falls apart when you touch it.
I got a new archival safe scrapbook, scanned the front of the old Baby Book and put that picture in the front of the new book.
This is taking a lot of time and effort, but it will be well worth it, knowing the book will last longer. I want to save the original writing because it is my Mom's handwriting and so is very special to me.
