Welcome to another edition of Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite illustrations and stories from our vintage bookshelves!
This week I'd like to show you a real favorite in our house. Whereas some vintage books may be hard for modern kids to relate to, this book really translates into our time as well, and my kids love it!
It's called the Big Tidy-Up, is written by Norah Smaridge, and illustrated by Les Gray. The copyright is 1970. It's a story about a little girl who hates cleaning her room, so her mother lets her keep it a mess. But, of course, it becomes so messy that it's not fun anymore, so she decides to clean it up in the end.
The illustrations are just so cute and whimsical, but in a sophisticated kind of way, you know? I love the color pallette throughout the book.
You just know you'd snatch up that vintage sheet if you saw it at the thrift store or an estate sale!
