omigosh…i can’t breathe. these look AWESOME!!!!!!! i am absolutely in LOVE with childrens books!!!
JACKPOT! What a haul you made. Love the photo of Phoebe! I remember these from my gradeschool years. Thanks for the wonderful memories these pictures triggered.
I have such a soft spot for childrens books and the beauty they hold within their covers. You’ve definitely come up trumps with these gems!
I was JUST thinking I need to find a copy of the Biggest Bear for my kids. I LOVED that book when I was young. I can still see the page with the mess he made in the kitchen, the dripping syrup! What a score!
I had The Secret Three! Isn’t there a part where there is a secret code and the only way to read it was to put it up to the mirror? I loved that! Have fun – I’m jealous!

Phoebe looks as happy as I was to get books as a child–in heaven! My Grandma Tessie gave me so many great books… I’ll have to search out some of them for a fun post. (PS: The Secret Three is such a great book!)
what’s the story here? are these well loved older books saved in the family? very cute.
We loooove Biggest Bear!
My great-Aunt gave me a collection of vintage French children’s books. They are such a treasure. Still looking for the perfect rack to display them cover-side out!
