I Wish That I Had Duck Feet



I spent most of yesterday 'thrifting'.
I had half a dozen or so shops to visit.
At the last one I found these vintage, mid 50's and early 60's,
'I Can Read It, Beginner Readers'.

All of the authors worked together for this series of children's books.
One of the authors, Theo LeSieg, was the pen name used by
Dr.Seuss himself......Theodor Seuss Geisel.

Last evening when at the shoppe adding these to the other books I have there,
the massage therapist, Jen, noticed this new pile.
She bought one immediately for her son, Sam who is 4.
Can you guess which one?

  2. OH MY gosh, Sam....of course, oh the things you find....some things i have I wish I could contribute to your store but you know how expensive post Canada has become and i unfortunately am broke..oh the joy you must feel in finding such treasures in other old shoppe that you can make your own, would you believe I have a very old brown book that contains lessons on old records for French people to learn English, it's unbelievable the things i have found but i had to give up because of the lack of money. I predict you and Ron will make of fortune and you'll get even more old and golden treasures....i have a norman rockwelll when the teen comes back from the war, at least i know I have that one. I haven't gone through all my boxes yet, because I'm scared, they didn't give enough time to move and when i went back they had thrown 10 full bags of garbage out, of my things, of my life, my souvenir and collections. Haven't yet gone through everything, because I'm sure I lost everything. But the worst was losing my most loving cat ever, she never hurt me, she comforted me she was the most loving cat i ever had, and she got scared during the move and I never found her or most of my collections. So although it hurts a little it's also a pleasure to come here and see what new discovery you have made...

    1. Sorry to hear this, Lorraine. I hope you get a chance to look at the things you managed to take with you.
      I am not doing this 'shoppe venture' to make any fortune, I can assure you. My main goal is to see and remember all the things I found over the years at shops from here to New England and to get it out there again so I can have an empty basement! lol

  6. How special to have a book with Sam's name!
    I'm partial to "I was kissed by a seal at the zoo" (and I liked it).

  7. Sam must be thrilled that his name is in a book. How cute. I love these books! I have a small collection of these types of books that I'm saving. For what? I'm not sure. LOL... I just can't give them up.
