I saw this wonderful book on eBay the other day. I'd love to buy it just for the charming house on the cover!

It's a children's book and was printed in 1976.

I checked my local library and they have it, but I think I'd like my own someday - to add to my vintage Christmas books collection!

This is such a great book, and I love the whole series!! Mr. Whiskers, is my favorite!! I was a teacher, and for each season I would read my kids the book for that season. I wish I owned them, but they were from the library. So fun!;) xo Heather

How sweet! Beautiful illustrations -- I can see why you'd want it for your own. I'm going to check my library so I can read it to my granddaughter!

It looks adorable.. I would love to add that to my christmas book collection.

The illustrations are charming, and I often see children's books I would like to buy just for the illustrations, when I visit bookstores.

Wow, it really is vintage sweet! Maybe Santa will bring your one!

Love all the vintage images. I may add it to my wish list too!

Enjoy the blessings of the season!

What a darling children's book. They just don't make them like they used to.
I'm looking forward to tuning in for your Rednesdays this week. Last week I didn't have a speck of my favorite color in my weekly post.
Thanks for hosting, sue!
