Goin’ on a treasure hunt! I found vintage books.

This morning I finally worked up the courage to brave the bugs and heat in our storage building to look for my children’s books. I pulled out three Rubbermaid tubs, and I think there is at least one more out there, that contain my sister’s and my books from our childhood. I slid them onto our wagon and delivered the boxes to my kitchen to sort through them there. I’m nowhere near finished, but I thought I’d share a few of the great finds I have come across so far.

These were two of my favorites. I love Little Bear!

You can’t see it in this picture, but most of these have a price of $.89 in the top right corner. The last one, Sleepy Bear, has a sticker on it that says $.82.

I can’t wait to read these stories to Lincoln.

This next one is actually my sister’s, and we still have the Teddy Ruxpin doll with the tape player in it…somewhere. It’s in another box in storage.

This one is my sister’s too. Remember these guys?

What a book!

Today I ventured to Target to search for a baby shower gift. I was browsing the children books when I came across this book.

The front cover features a pull tab that makes the tail on the middle dog wag. How cute is that! Right? And this page was even cuter, with the “Wet dog-shake, shake, shake!”

Then I got to this page…

And yes, that lifted leg really is a pull tab piece, and that is a stream of yellow pee showing. I don’t think this is one that I would want to give as a gift. 🙂
