  1. Very cool! I currently have this book for sale in my Etsy shop. So cool to have this book featured!

  2. I can remember reading this as a child, but I haven't seen it in years. I never would have guessed that so many different artist collaborated on this project. I have been really interested in children's picture books ever since I took a course on the subject last semester, and I found your post fascinating.


  3. I love vintage children's picture books. I can't believe I've never seen or heard of this book before. It looks very cute and the illustrations are amazing. I would love to write my own children's picture book someday.
