My Home

My Home
Renée Bartkowski with illustrations by ROFry/ published 1971 by Little Golden Books

Not sure what's up with this illustrator's name, but I imagine it has something to do with artistic individuality. That being the case, I'll let it be. (Though it does make me contemplate a legal name change to SCRibBla.)

Similarly themed to A House is a House For Me, this sweet Little Golden Book is all about the different sorts of homes for things and people. The tone makes me feel all snugly inside with good feelings, and during each read, my son usually hugs my neck tight and senses the warm fuzzies himself.

It doesn't matter at all if my home's on a hill,
Or down by the deep blue sea --
As long as it's filled with people I love,
And people who also love me.

Very 70s vibe throughout and lots and lots of animals to be ogled and enjoyed. (I apologize for the tape in the scan. This copy's been a little too loved if you know what I mean.) Copies a plenty available online.


  1. I second the name change! haha!
