Three Books I'll Never Throw Away

There is always going to be certain things you just don't want to throw out. These three books I want to hold on to!

This one is the best book! It has some really cool, historic stories. A story about how to make paint out of berries, another one about Ben Franklin, another one about Daniel Boone and more. The copyright dates are 1895 and 1923. Yep it's super old!


This book is filled with illustrations by Howard Pyle and N.C. Wyeth. Both I teach about in my college Illustration course. They are classics. N.C.. Wyeth is interesting because he had a son Andrew Wyeth that has work in many museums and a grandson Jamie Wyeth that is a well known photographer. My mom used to read stories and nursery rhymes out of this book to me.


My mom read stories out of this book as well.


Do you have any books you hold on to?

too many, unfortunately! But, the classics are definitely something that I would never give up!

I have a terrible time getting rid of books, even the ones I don't like. I'm afraid I'll be clinging to stacks of kids books for ages...they have such wonderful memories for me.

I know not the books - do not think that we have these books in Denmark :)

Most of the children's books I read to our sons have been passed on to a younger generation. But I grew up on a series of books called My Book House, and I so wish I had stashed them away when I went to college. One sister has tried to collect some; I have only Book 5. There were 12 books, starting with nursery rhymes and moving through Grimm's Fairy Tales, etc.

My mom threw everything away when I went to college! I had some wonderful books that I remember fondly, but they're gone. :(

I think I had the first book pictured and I know I had the last. I think the grandkids have them now.

Mother Goose is timeless and I think almost every generation has grown up with it.

Oh my yes!
I was just asking my Mom a couple of weeks ago if she remembered the book sales at my grade school. She did. I told her about a book she bought me when I was in 1st or 2nd grade. I still have it. She had no idea.
We both collect old children's books.
