I have always loved children’s books – from the time I was a kid myself right up until now. I actually work for a children’s book publisher, so you can see, this is a life long thing. And I have recently started collecting first editions of rare children’s books from my past. You can get some great deals, and there’s a lot out there. So today, I’m rounding up some vintage picture book finds online in celebration of National Library Week.
The Picnic, by James S. Tippett, illustrated by Samuel J. Brown
A very valuable James and the Giant Peach, by Roald Dahl
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, by Dr. Seuss
The Twits, by Roald Dahl
The Bed Book, by Sylvia Plath
Blueberries for Sal, by Robert McCloskey
What are some of your favorite children’s books? Do you have a collection of your own?
