I have a bunch of old vintage books and seem to keep acquiring more. One of my plans when  starting this blog was to do a post every now and then sharing one of my cherished vintage books. Then I thought there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share.

This meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ is for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share?

Explore the life of a moose…

When little Humpy the Moose comes into the world, he is amazed with all there is to learn. Each day brings a new lesson, and before long he must learn how to make it on his own. Children will delight in the story of how Humpy the Moose transforms from a scared little animal to the master of all he can see!

Humpy the Moose is a book that we quickly snatched up at a library book sale years ago. As soon as I saw it, a sense of familiarity hit me, and it looked like a book from my childhood. My then six-year-old son was just starting to read easy books, and with our love of nature, this is one we simply couldn’t pass up. I’ve always been fascinated by these majestic creatures.

A Kindle of Kittens by Rumer Godden is a book I had to do some searching for. We were reading through an old book that had a recommended reading list of vintage children’s books in it, and this one sounded perfect for my 6-year-old.  We’re an animal loving family and cherish books like this. We fell in love with the cover right away.

Hans in Luck is a children’s book I found at a sale many years ago. It became a favorite right away and now remains on our shelf. This fairy tale is German in origin and was recorded by the Brothers Grimm in 1812. This is a retelling that’s simplified, but the author stays true to the original.
