Today I arrived home to a wonderful package. You see, a couple weeks ago I entered a blog giveaway on one of my favorite blogs Vintage Kids Books My Kid Loves and I won! This wasn’t the typical weekly giveaway that Scribbler hosts though. It was a grab bag of her picks. I was so excited to pull into the driveway and spy the package leaning against our door. Behold the goodness:
A wonderful pile of delicious treats! Among it are gems like Chicken Soup With Rice by Maurice Sendak and Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel and The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. And there are more obscure titles that I’m not familiar with such as Strangers’ Bread by Nancy Willard (illustrated by David McPhail) and The Giant’s Shoe by Jessica Nelson North (illustrated by Esther Friend). Each piece looks wonderful and I cannot wait to wander through them. I must admit though the one that had me squeal and run to show Mark was My Father’s Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett and illustrated by Ruth Chrisman Gannett.
Ever since Scribbler reviewed it and I spied images such as this:
I have been searching for it. Hoping to see it for myself and take it all in. Now, thanks to Scribbler, I can mark it off the must find list and enjoy its loveliness.
