Bookstore News April 11 - 14
This week we have a special treat for anyone that loves children’s literature- especially vintage children’s literature. The collection I’m referring to is mostly (though not exclusively) from the 1940s through the 1970s and they collectively represent a window into some of the best children’s literature of that time. In addition to the older classics like” Little Women”, “The Wind in the Willows”, “The Jungle Book” , and “Swiss Family Robinson”, you will find books by Lois Lenski, Marguerite de Angeli, Eleanore Estes, Betty Cavanna, Keith Robertson (Henry Reed), Tove Jansson, and more. This collection also includes many Newbery Award winners. The condition of these books lets you know they have been read and loved by many, but what they lack in looks they make up for in personality and nostalgia value. The books are only $1.00 each and many have wonderful dust jackets that will kindle fond memories of the past.
