Welcome to Lil' Vintage Story Books #2! In this series, I'm sharing my favorite vintage children's books. Feel free to link up with your own favorites as well! I'd love to find some "new" books that I haven't run across yet!
This week's book is one of my very favorites, for the illustrations. It's called "Fun on the Animal Railroad". It's written by Mary Windsor and illustrated by Vic Havel. The copyright is 1951.
If you can tell from the above photo, it actually opens out on both sides, so that it's four pages wide.
I think these little lambs are my favorite!
Love these bunnies, too!
That's some excellent advice on the right page above!
If you've been a follower of my blog for a while, you may recognize some of the characters from this book. A big part of the reason I buy vintage children's books is for the illustrations to use in my collage artwork. I've used the animals in this book in numerous pieces of art over the years (all copies of course-not the originals). Below are some of these pieces.
