Today for Kelli's Show and Tell I wanted to share a couple of my favorite books from my childhood. I came across these recently at my mom's house. I had wondered what had happended to them and was thrilled to walk down memory lane as I flipped through them. Both of the books are very old, and you can tell by looking at their covers that I got a lot of enjoyment out of them. :)

Little Sallie Mandy and Tommy Whiskers is a delightful story about a little girl and her precocious cat who can't resist the temptation of seeing some new little birds up in a nest. Tommy Whiskers learned a hard lesson when he was attacked by the momma bird. I remember looking at the colorful pictures over and over again when I was a little girl and making up stories of my own.
A Pint of Judgment is a Christmas story set in the late 19th century. The pictures are black and white sketches, but the family in the story seemed so real to me.
I sure enjoyed running across the books again. I hope to share them with my children soon.

You can't have enough old friends AND old books!! To me there is something so cozy and comforting about revisiting a favorite friend(book;o) over and over again. I think the illustrations in the book are just darling and I can certainly see why you loved it so. A true sign of a good book is when you actually believe the characters are real!!

Sweet treasures and memories! I wish I could find some of the books I remember from my childhood that I loved so much. I do have one book, a collection of stories and poems, that belonged to my mother when she was a little girl, that I also love to look through and read the stories again.

Oh, I just love old books like this ~ and these made all the more special because of the precious memories from your own childhood.

Oh, how wonderful that you still have these childhood books!

I remember a visit to a book store some years ago, just before Christmas. I found one of the books over there that I had LOVED when I was a little child! And when I saw it, I had immediatly tears in my eyes because it brought back sooo many memories! And of course, I had to buy it - as a wonderful Christmas gift for myself.

Best wishes from Germany,
Anita
