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.
