They are real treasure.
I love children's books the most.
Maybe because they almost always have pictures & I like pictures a lot. They always help to tell the story...it's how we remember them so well.
Barbara passed on an Inspiring Blogger Award to me quite recently which was so very sweet of her. I have decided to be innovative with the honour & use it as a catalyst (like tag) to tell you about one of my favourite places in Hastings. The Little Red Book Shop.
Nosey little monkey!
Siobhan & Adrian have recently extended the bookshop space to include a reading room with coffee machine out the back. It is still a work in progress, but should be available very soon.
I feel quite sure that Siobhan & I share a love of vintage children's books, as, a world away at March House Books does Barbara, whom I mentioned back at the beginning of this post. She has a lovely blog highlighting children's books & illustrations & other bits & bobs. Barbara also has a wonderful website:
"March House Books is an online book shop specialising in the sale of gently used children’s and illustrated books. Every item in our store is accompanied by a picture or pictures so that you can see exactly what you are buying. We also provide comprehensive condition reports."
I first came across Barbara on Pinterest which is where I love to gather together all my favourite book titles & children's illustrations.
Visit my board Lovely Children's Books & Illustrations here.
And Favourite Children's Artists here.
This is one of my favourite little videos...about the joy of books of course!!!
Thank you so much for visiting!!
I'd love to know..what were your own favourite childhood books?
