  1. Adorable! I love children's poems and the illustrations are a joy. Sadly poetry/rhyming books are the only ones I can't share with my girls, as they're impossible to translate and not lose their charm. We do have the A.A.Milne books though- maybe when they 're a little older and learning English we'll have a go...

    1. Little Sis and I paid a visit to a small antique store today, killing time while Big Sis was in theatre class. I was excited to find this one, as I wasn't already familiar with it. The fact that it was in a nice plastic slipcover for protection and the price tag only read "$4.00" made it especially sweet. :o)

    1. That link helped me identify my one LGB first edition. ;o) I'm not a stickler for such things. I collect books for the enjoyment of them. But it's kinda fun to know when you luck out!
