This is a book that has been loved to pieces.
I don't know where the cover went to.
Gilbert has a thing for song books. He used to get piano books and ask people to sing them to him.
And this book not only has familiar, lovely songs that I can sing to him without making up a random tune that always peters out about the third verse, but it also has adorable little illustrations.
Isn't this a sweet little woodland scene?
Lazy Mary--I wouldn't want to get out of a bed that had such a cute quilt either.
Every other page has minimal, black and white illustrations.
I love these little geese!
This was one of my favorite pictures! Isn't it too impossibly sweet? I think my mom and dad used an illustration like this to announce one of our births. I seem to remember seeing it at some point.
I love all of these busy little girls!
