This is a vintage children's book titled "Here and Near" and it is very similar to "At Home". The book was published 1957 but is also dated 1961. The publisher is Allyn and Bacon, Inc and is from the Sheldon Basic reading Series . I've included a few cute pages from each of the various short stories.
