Vintage Ladybird - The Little Lord Jesus and Come Play with Us (a Peter and Jane book)

Posted by PicasaLadybird books!!  I need to try and collect as many of these as possible!  Which ones did you have?  My grandmother gave me "The Little Lord Jesus" when I was 3 and a half and somehow it survived all these years- a notable accomplishment since I have moved quite a few times.  This Peter and Jane book - "Play With Us" is from a used book sale and you can see that some little person was using it for printing practice.  :)  The first Peter and Jane books came out in the sixties, then were updated in the early seventies, and then again in the late seventies, like this one.  The illustrations change slightly over the years to reflect the changing times and styles of clothes, parenting, and play.  Check out for lots of fun stuff including adorable ladybird gifts.

  1. I think I had both of those books when I was a girl, amazingly enough! ^_^

  2. Cool! Do you still have any of your old books from when you were a child?

  3. What great memories that you have from your childhood!

    thanks for linking up again this week!
