I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me, And what can be the use of him is more than I can see. Words by Robert Louis Stevenson from A Child's Garden of Verses. The Copy above is what started my collection. It was my Mothers as you can see from the penciled in name below-Gerlene,
She gave me her childhood copy when I was in high school and that started me off. I would pick them up through the years when I would see one. Mostly vintage but some newer versions.
This copy is a cloth book with the most wonderful graphics. I think that's partly what started my love of vintage. The graphics in some of these books is amazing!
I began to love all vintage children's books and artwork.
Love the cover on this one. My friend Donna and I were at GW last week and I found not 1 but 2 vintage copies in the kids book section.That was a good thrifting day. I have many more copies and will share more with you later. I hope you enjoyed my little book collection tour. What's your favorite children's book? I'd love to know.
But my lazy little shadow, like an errant sleepyhead, Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
