Today I would like to show you 4 of my most favorite books. I am definitely a bookworm and am on the lookout for books everytime I go to a thrift store or yard sale.
The first book is a very worn copy of The Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening by J.I. Rodale and Staff. This copy is dated 1959. This is my gardening "Bible"! You can look up anything garden related alphabetically. I spend untold hours during the winter reading this book.The second book is a really cute book by Rebecca McCann, called the Cheerful Cherub. My copy is dated 1947. This book is filled with absolutely adorable pictures of the Cherub with cute little poems for any occasion.
One of my favorite little poems is called Food:
"When work seems rather dull to me
and life is not so sweet,
One thing at least can bring me joy
I simply love to eat"
The third book is a very beautfiul book by Howard Chandler Christy called "The American Girl". This book was in a box of books that I bought at an auction once for $1.00 for the entire box of books. This copy is dated 1906.
The book has photos very much like the "Gibson" girls. There is a section called The American Girl in the Coiuntry, The Debutane, The Bride, etc. The photos is this book are just beautiful.The last book is another very beautiful book. It is called The Song and Garden Birds of North America. It was put our by National Geographic and mine copy is dated 1964.
The color photos is this book are frame worthy. It shows photos and descriptions of practically every bird in this country and at the back of the book there is a little booklet that has some very flimsy vinyl records that plays the birds songs. I have played the little record and it is so neat!
I hope you enjoyed my Show and Tell!
Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed weekend!
