Last summer I went down to my dark and dusty basement to find the childhood books that I still remembered.. I had SO many books as a child.. and I remembered a lot of them. I went searching through them ALL for my absolute favorite books that shaped me as a child. These books were picked up from Goodwill by my Grandmother when I was a child. My Grandmother LOVED to read books with me! I definitely feel that it improved my vocabulary and speech in general.
The Glass Valentine (1969)
I LOVE the illustrations in this book! The color scheme is really what gets me, though!
Pelly and Peak (1978)
Pelly and Peak is a book of short stories about a peacock and a pelican that are more or less.. a couple. It's so cute! The pages are very fragile and even turning the page makes them rip now! :(
The color scheme in this book is beautiful, as well.
Don't you just want to squeeze the crap out of these cute little cats? They are the perfect models- and, yes- they are real cats!
