i also like to collect vintage kidbooks. this became a passion of mine after digging through those which were my dad's/uncles' and which are now mine for my classroom from grandma's garage. ALSO from thrift-digging like every other poor college student to begin building a classroom lib! This ones cool! and illustrated by richard scarry, another passion of mine ;) I miss lowly worm every day!
And speaking of books, Richard Scarry's Best Story Book Ever, which it really is if I do say so myself.
From the cheery sun on the first page, to the sleepy moon on the last, and throughout all 290 pages in between, there are stories, rhymes and fun with the one-and-only Richard Scarry. Classic tales, alphabet and counting stories, lots of new words and concepts, and visits around town, to the airport, and across the world make this essential book that will captivate even the most restless child.(
During a period of 2-3 years, I would bring Richard Scarry books from the school library and read them (in great detail) while having lunch made by my grandmother...she gave me chopped bananas with vanilla ice cream for dessert and to this day, I always remember my grandma and these books when I eat that...
