I was going through the kid's books organizing, weeding out ones that we don't read too often and trying to make more room for our every growing collection. As I was going through them, I realized some of my favorite books are the old vintage ones I have collected here and there. They have great illustrations.
Here are a couple of my favorite.
I love this one and the kid's do too. We have read this book hundreds of times. It is now really falling apart and we don't read it much because I want to somehow repair it before we destroy it more. This was a gift from a friend when Ella was born. It was published in the 1956. I love the kid's clothes and most of all I love the way these kid's play..the way kid's should play, using their imagination and being creative in their play.
This one is called A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson and illustrated by Gyo Fujikawa. It was published in 1957. Love these illustrations also.
A great collection of classics published in 1959. This one is falling apart also.
Another favorite of the kids with great illustrations, published in 1959.
I love the record player illustrated under the heading 'And How We Live Today'.
We love these books...a little too much. We need to find a place to rebind them before they are destroyed.
