Lil' Vintage Story Books #23

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

This is another Little Golden Book called "A Dragon in a Wagon", by Janette Rainwater, illustrated by John Martin Gilbert, and published in 1966.

It is such a fun little book showing rhyming words with silly illustrations.

 Such a simple concept, but so cute!

I love this illustration of the king on a swing!

Here in Florida, we see lots of armadillos, but never on pillows!

My kids especially love this page because there's a tiny picture of the book on the nightstand- they think that's so clever!  I love this page because it means I can send them all to bed!!

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

Such lovely bright illustrations. We're especially fond of dragons at our house. All the animals are fabulous.
