With Best Wishes this token is presented with The Compliments of your teacher.

Middle page:
SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 12 Cerro Gordo Township, Lac Qui Parle County, Minnesota; ELLA M. LINDBOE, Teacher

Additional notes:
The booklet was about 3"x5", printed on heavy ivory stock with light color on the front. I sent the original back to Minnesota to a Lindboe relative, so can't check, but don't remember that it had any mention of publisher's name. It was probably a stock item, customized for each teacher who ordered it with her picture and her class list.
