I did sort of wonder, but never admitted it to myself but it can't be covered up any longer. I have an obssession with collecting children's books. I came to this realisation when I found the Vintage Children's Group on flickr as advertised by allsorts on her blog. My heart gave a leap as I saw myself reaching for all my lovely books and sharing them with the world(!) So I spent most of the afternoon surrounded by piles of books, scanning madly, posting quickly onto flickr. I didn't even have lunch but I wasn't hungry in the afternoon. I think the children came home from school about 3.30 ish but I don't know what they did after that. Maybe the mad glint in my eyes sent them running into the garden to play and get away from me. Thankfully, I have gone through most of my books - I posted 65 pictures - so I can slow down now and find others when and if I want to. I will post a link to flickr if I can but I'll give you a little taster here. But which ones I'm asking myself? Will it be something by the great Edward Ardizzone, an Elsa Beskow book for younger children, Dr Dolittle, something by Enid Blyton? No - it'll be a pic from one of my favourite books: Japanese Children's favourite Stories.
