I found your blog through your etsy shop, which I found through dooce. HOUSE IS A HOUSE..., with its riddling rhymes, is exactly the kind of book my 3-year-old's into now, the kind to which he would later say, "Mommy, who lives in a teapot?"

scribbler said...

if he'd read the book, he would know that a teapot is a home for some tea!

Swati said...

Wow, this is the kind of place I dream about! All about books. Lovely books. Children's books. Old books. Books overflowing the house, and still more wanting to get in. Books that one has to get rid of in interest of marital accord - sigh. Got here from your etsy shop (pointed by dooce) - and I am DELIGHTED to be here! Who knows I might even be inspired to resume writing daily on mine as well! (I write about websites for children - the ones I have used for my kid!) Thank you!

lissie said...

What a wonderful idea for a blog! Love it, keep 'em coming! :)

NellaBean said...

I hate buying my son "new" copies of books I used to love - the illustrations are all wrong and the covers aren't dinged up from years of being on library shelves. Yay for vintage books!

Debbie R said...

Oh this looks like one of my childhood favorites that I still have. I used to read it to my little sister and brother and remember those times fondly. That book was Never Talk To Strangers! Yummy illustrations and colors.
Thank you for what you do! I love to look through all of your suggestions when I have spare time.

Pretty Jane said...
