Susan also loved My Dolly and Me and still has her copy!
Karen can relate and remembers a 1950's book that fascinated her at the doctor's office when she was a child. All she can remember was that it was about a little blonde boy's first day of school. If you have that book seems familiar to you and you know the title, let us know!
Judy and I mused about how well we can remember these books we loved. She suggested that maybe reading the Little House on the Prairie series might have influenced her love of fabrics from the 1800's to 1920's! It's interesting to look back on what influenced us as youngsters and discover how relevant it is in our adult choices!!!
Since we are speaking of the Little House books, most of us grew up with the illustrations of Garth Williams in our books. The original illustrator was Helen Sewell and there is an interesting article here you can read.
