Heirlooms: Vintage Children's Books

Sam and I are both fortunate enough to have two lovely mothers who saved stacks of our favorite childhood books. His mostly Dr Seuss, mine mostly Angelina Ballerina. We also have several Little Golden Books, which I adore! I am really starting to read to Matilda (at least one book a day). She kicks and shrieks when I plop down with her and a book. It warms my soul. This week one of the books we read was Horton Hatches the Egg. I had never read it before. It's the sweetest book! It teaches kids to honor their word, that good deeds don't go unnoticed, and that flying elephants really do exist!
