Welcome again to Lil' Vintage Story Books, where we share our favorite vintage children's books!
Today we have a sweet book called "Where Did the Baby Go?", written by Sheila Hayes, illustrated by Eloise Wilkin, and published in 1974.
It's about a little girl who finds an old photo of a baby wearing a big hat.
She asks her mother who the baby is, and the mother tells her it is someone she sees every day.
The little girl begins to look around the house for the baby.
I just love Eloise Wilkin's illustrations, don't you?The detail she puts in every picture is amazing- the wallpaper patterns, the quilt, the rug...
As an artist, it would drive my crazy having to paint the little flowers on this dress on every single page! But obviously, Eloise Wilkin thrives on it!
The little girl continues looking for the baby. Her mother gives her the hint that the baby liked to play dress-up.
She runs to her mother's closet and looks among the dress-up clothes. She finds the hat from the picture and looks at herself in the mirror...
...and realizes that the baby was herself! She's so proud!
