Queen Holden mini booklet

This small booklet, "Billy and Peggy" is roughly 2 and 1/2 inches high and was part of a collection of paper dolls belonging to one Nancy Anne Nash. I found her stash of paper dolls about two years ago in a local antiques store. They were crammed into a brown paper bag, and dated from the late 1930s-early 1940s. The paper was thin and fragile, with many pieces crumbling at the slightest touch.

My guess is that this was included in a larger set, but which one?

Notice on the little school berets, the date "195?" Perhaps looking forward about 15 years when these toddlers would graduate!
