Another Thrift Store Treasure

At least, it's a treasure in my humble opinion.  Especially since Louisa May Alcott is one of my favorite authors.  Yes, today at the Goodwill I found two books, actually, one of them being Eight Cousins, in the form of a delightful 1955 edition, complete with adorable, cheerful, and bright illustrations. I'm in love.

1955 Version of Eight Cousins

The other book I found is a hard-bound copy of Strawberry Girl, by Lois Lenski. Honestly girls, if you haven't read any of Lois Lenski's books, then (if I remember right!), you're missing out!  They are sweet, simple tales with fascinating pictures.  The Lenski books are a little harder to find, so I grabbed it up like a chunk of silver.

  5. Is this the same person who wrote childrens books about the Smalls? I have some books for my son like "Cowboy Small" and "Policeman Small". I love them, they take children back to simpler days.
