Lil' Vintage Story Books #7

Welcome again to Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite vintage children's books!

This week, I unpacked the Christmas boxes, and pulled out all our Christmas books!  It's fun to get to read books we haven't seen for a while! 

 Here we have "The Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas", by Adelaide Holl, illustrated by Florence Winship, and pubished in 1972.  I don't know if you can tell by the photos, but it's actually a large Golden book, about 11x14.

 It's about five mischevous little puppies (the same from the original "Poky Little Puppy") who sneak off and see their first Christmas tree.

 They scheme to create a Christmas of their own.

 They leave a note for Santa- too cute!

 Here's my favorite- they wake up the next morning to find an addition to their note!  Mother always knows!!

 Then the sweet poky puppy puts his own addition onto the note.

 They wake up Christmas morning to lots of presents for everyone!

And a special present from their mother- jingle bell collars so that she can keep track of them!  Tee hee!

Thanks for stopping by! If you'd like to join in, grab a button to the right and link up below!

I pulled out my vintage Christmas books last night for today's link party. Your Poky Little Puppy's First Christmas is darling. I don't own that one and the graphics are so sweet. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for hosting!

How sweet. We have the Poky Little Puppy ornament and it's book. I adore these oversized books as their graphics are just that much bigger. Enjoy your weekend. I will be back later today with a Christmas book of my own...smiles...Renee

Aww..those are just the cutest puppies! What an adorable book, such a lovely little story. I love the illustration of the Christmas tree in the window.

Have a good weekend :)

Gorgeous! I have never seen this one - it looks delightful!
It seems I had the same idea as everyone else. I am doing a Christmas book as well. I think I will do one each week in December.

Your Pokey book is adorable. I just love the graphics and colors in the older books. I saw that Kim K. had posted about your linky party so I had to come over to check it out. I love old books!
