    Such nostalgia, seeing these, funny thing is, though these pictures bring back the memories of reading them as a child. They are packed in an airtight container in my garage, I could've had one in my hands now, it I hadn't typed all this jibber jabber, Yep the whole Babar series.

    Probably the reason for my love of elephants. My grandfather had some gorgeous old Babar books that he read to me. Exciting and scary, what with all that world travel and danger.

"The Story of Babar", by Jean de Brunhoff. For those poor few who do not know, Babar was a baby African elephant whose mother was killed by a Big Game hunter. He ended up somehow in Paris where he was adopted by a Little Old Lady who taught him to wear clothes, speak French, and become a civilized young gentleman. A wonderful, wonderful story.

I totally almost forgot about this guy.

MY favorite books as a child (my kids voted "OK" for me to add to "their list.") ;)

Babar-My favorite childhood memory. I love all things Babar!

Babar the Elephant Celeste and Arthur in The Car Jean de Brunhoff 1960s Childrens Book Illustration to Frame. $9.99, via Etsy.

The first (of many) story of Babar, the little orphan who becomes King of the Elephants. I love how in the earlier books, the writing is Jean De Brunhoff's script so you are reading cursive.
