It's Vintage Love Saturday over on SouthernLadyVintage's blog. This week the theme is children and young adult books. Fortunately, I have several to share! Mother Goose was always one of my favorites. My grandparents brought me a copy when I was 5 or 6 years old and sick for several days. I remember reading it over and over. To this day, reading one of the many nursery rhymes brings a smile to my heart. This is a smaller book, made for little hands. Dated 1960. Loved today as much as it was 50 years ago.

This adorable children's book was published in the 1940's. I love the graphics of this decade. They are bright and cherry!

All children love puppies, so this one is sure to please. Dated 1943. Written for an older child, doesn't have all the pictures, but a sweet story!

Come join the fun! Just make a post about your favorite children's book and link up on SouthernLadyVintage's blog hop! Each week there is a different theme so everyone can participate.
More information on these children's books can be found in my Antiques Galore Gal Etsy store.


  1. Hi! Just thought I'd share some of my children's books. I've got more coming...

  2. Sweet books. I'm fond of the drawings and illustrations of that era, too.

  3. Mother Goose is so stern and scary-looking in some books, but not here, in a purple bonnet! Isn't it amazing how seeing some of the same illustrations, or even the same artists' work, can stop you in your tracks even though it's a few decades later?

    I never complain about reading the same book again and again to a certain little Grandbunny I know ... it's so important!

  4. These are all wonderful old books! What fun!! Thanks for sharing!!

  5. As a retired teacher, so many books passed through my classroom! Most I passed on to the children or other teachers when I retired. My grandkids have so many of their own....wish I had some of them back now!

  6. I love the illustrations of the childrens books of the 30-40's......the cartoons from that era were the best.
