One of my favorite things in the world is vintage children's books. I love the sweet stories, and nostalgic illustrations that sort of take me
back in my mind to a simpler time.
I was blessed
with a wonderful childhood and so many special memories associated with my younger days. I have the most wonderful parents in the world, and I am so thankful for them! I am also thankful that I grew up in a time when children were allowed to be children.
I guess vintage books help me revisit those days, but whatever the reason I can hardly pass up a pretty little child's book from yesteryear. I started collecting them when my children were little, and continued when they
were well pass the days of being interested in them. My husband teased me for buying them, he just couldn't quite get my fascination with them. I'm glad I kept it up now, with all of my grandchildren they certainly come in handy!
I picked up some a couple of weeks ago when on a thrifting jaunt and thought I'd share them with you.
Here are a few of them. I'll share more of them another day. Aren't these sweet? I haven't had a chance to sit down and read them yet, but I can hardly wait for a free minute to do so.
Do you have a favorite book from childhood? I'd love for you to share it in the comments! I loved the little red or orange biographies of great Americans, The Little House series, Little Women, books of poetry, and children's cookbooks, but my favorite books were the things to make and do type of books. Even as a kid I was a crafter at heart!
