Two books illustrated by Lilian Obligado for you today. The cover of the first one, the Golden Sturdy Shape book, reminded me of something that I still have from childhood. Check out these pictures I took of my Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe piggy bank. As you can see from the bottom of the 'shoe' - my aunt Vicki made it in 1981 for me. Isn't it adorable? I don't have a ton of things still from my childhood but this managed to to make it unscathed. It now resides in my 1-year-old's room on her shelf.
