A few years ago before I was really interested in vintage children's books, I came upon this one that instantly took me back to my childhood.. I had so many books, I took it upon myself one day to give them all away to some children that I was babysitting - why did Mom let me do that?? I sure wish I had kept them.
Four Little Puppies
A Real Live Animal Book
Don't you love their names - Wags, Tags, Rags and Obidiah?? They lived with their Aunt Oscar and Aunt Abbie -
The book has the sweetest pictures.
I was reading a bit about the Rand McNally Elf Books - the Elf Books were made differently from Golden Books - the front and back covers are one piece and glued to the cover cardboard, the pages are stitched together and then glued to the cover by the first and last pages - this is why the covers did not hold up as well as Little Golden Books - take a look at them, there really is a difference. So, that is why Elf Books are often more tattered on the covers.
There is a a Wonder Book that I sure would like to have - The Costume Party - loved that one too. Do you remember any books that you wished you still had?
I'm joining in at A Favorite Thing at Mockingbird Hill Cottage again this week - my Vera scarves were featured in the round up - thanks so much...
