Let's Save Money by Loyta Higgins with illustrations by Violet Lamont published by Simon & Schuster in 1958. A golden activity book.
Violet Lamont was born in New York and studied at the University of Kansas. She worked for Little Golden Books from 1953-1959 and was best known for her activity books, including her illustrations for books on learning the ABCs and numbers.
