When Nina of The Whole Self told me she had some books she thought we might like, she was, um, slightly understated. My jaw completely dropped when I opened this package. Not sure how two books could be more perfectly 'us'. Wow.
The first book, a 1915 copy of Stories To Act. Simply gorgeous. And such lovely, simple stories of the classics, tales of woodland creatures and fairy tales. I have a thing for old 'school' books, but I rarely find drama books like this. Amazing. We will most certainly be acting some of these out soon.
And then, there's the book that Calvin is sleeping with right this very minute. Costumes for Nursery Tale Characters, by Jean Greenhowe (1976. A good year, I do say). He's been carrying this around non-stop today, flipping through and trying to make the tough decision between the friar, robin hood, and wee willie winkie. Tough call, I know. But I'm sure you'll be seeing one of those around soon. Very soon if he gets his wish.
Thanks so much, Nina!!
