Vintage children books....
They might be old and some tatty with aged yellow pages but there is something about hard bound vintage children books that I love.
When I discovered Ebay about 7years ago I felt like a kid let loose in a candy store.
I quickly become addicted!
These books are all Ebay wins and by author Beverly Cleary - I was a huge fan of hers as a young girl and her Ramona books were my favourite!!
I tried to get early editions as they remind me of my childhood and I love the older style illustrations. I hope my boys can grow to love them too!
I recently found this book at Rozelle Flea Market a couple of weeks ago.
Its called 'My First Book' and has a page for each letter of the alphabet with some sweet illustrations - I love it!
Its an english book and close to 60years old - I wonder what little child was first given this book, probably a special gift from someone.
Im sure many other children enjoyed it during all those years!
