i just love collecting children's books -
especially the vintage ones i remember reading as a child
syd hoff was always a favorite!
remember....he also wrote
"danny and the dinosaur"
but i always loved grizzwold : )
when my nephew had a baby -
i just had to make them this baby quilt!
my son found syd's address on the internet years ago -
so i wrote to him and sent him my original copy of his book -
and look !
he autographed it just for me : )
i soon found out he passed away just a few
months after he took the time to write me back.
he was 91 !
i will forever cherish it!
here is a little bookshelf i have at the top of my staircase-
filled with a few of my favs!
mary poppins, little black sambo, curious george....
and i flipped when i found this old "nutshell library"
of old maurice sendak stories....
and awwww..... just look at cranberrie when she was so little!
am i not the luckiest mom in the whole world!
another fav is richard scarry -
i grew up just reading all his books!
and just look at this little classic - illustrated by richard scarry!
i am watching this one on ebay ---
i hope i get it!
well - hope you enjoyed another little tour -
henny penny just told me apparently
the sky is falling....
i'm off to tell the king!
kisses and cupcakes,
