Hello....I have have been visiting my family in Chicago for the last week...so consequently, I haven't written a new post for a while. While there...I found some fun old children's books....my favorite things. For those of you who are familiar with my work...you already know that I am inspired by charming old colorful books and the characters that dwell within the pages. This one is a "doozy."
Little Jimmy teaches a group of well-dressed animals to make some snappy music...This was written in 1932.
I found this book at the same antique mall...a lucky day indeed.
Brother Crow is one of the many 'Jolly Animals"...this book was published in 1930.
This a pop-up book that was written in 1935...I seem to love the books from the 1930's the most.
Imagine my delight when I opened this book up. A Toy Shop...I definitely got my money's worth.
Lastly...This is a reprint...the original is from 1938. Lois Lenski was an award winning children's book author. This is from her series of "Mr. Small" books.
These pages are so enchanting.
So...like Mr. Small I will bid you farewell. I will be returning to my sewing room tomorrow and I will keep you posted about the adventures that we have in FunTown.
Have silly "Read Me a Story" fun, Jody, the children's librarian
