Books and Illustrations

When I visit the thrift store there is one thing I can not leave without purchasing....children's books with great illustrations. I'm a sucker for them. 


Time and Measuring by Adelaide Holl and Seymour Reit. Pictures by Harry McNaught. Golden Press New York. Distributed by Encyclopaedia Britannica. 1970 Edition. 



The Thinking Book by Adelaide Holl, Elementary School Teacher Worthington, Ohio. Pictures by Dagmar Wilson.  Golden Press New York 1970 edition. 



The Magic of Everyday Things by Seymour Reit. Pictures by June Goldsborough. Golden Press New York 1970 edition. 


I hope my grandkids enjoy thumbing through them as much as I do.

  4. I love the artwork in The Bear's Toothache. It reminds me of the whimsy of the Ernest Shepard. Another favorite is Garth Williams. Perhaps I love those stories for the stories. Perhaps I love them for the pictures. I will never know for certain!

  6. I also love children's books/illustrations and especially pop up books! I have so many Golden books and Pop up books ...I can't part with any of them although I'm sure they will be expensive to move.

  8. My first grandchild is due in late April. My five month India stay ends 16 Nov so I will be home until after the baby's birth. I do hope to get back to India in May. It is my healing place and I've lost 30 lbs during my two visits.

    I'll start shopping for nice books for him/her!

  9. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!
