MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD STORYBOOK

There's a storybook from my childhood that has never left my memory.
It had long ago been given away or discarded.
All I could really remember was the name of the book and the fact that I loved it.

I was so happy to finally find it on the internet.

Me Too!
A Whitman Tell-A-Tale Book
copyright 1962 ~ the year after I was born  ~ yes, I'm old  : )


I didn't remember that the little girl's name was Anne
which of course is part of my name.
Maybe it's not too surprising that we named our daughter Anna.


I had older sisters so that may be part of the reason I connected to this book.
Or maybe it was because I loved to play with dolls like these girls.
(It appears that Anne is spanking her baby ~ not sure I like that part.)


I am sure I loved their pretty blue dresses.


And their pretty house with their pretty Mamma.

Whatever the reasons, I'm so happy I found it again!

Did you have a favorite storybook as a child?

Thanks A Bunch For Visiting!

  1. I've never heard of that book. I was a big reader as a kid, but don't remember a favorite book, my I'm beginning to think my memory is getting bad.

  4. I'm much older (75) ..but the favorite book I remember reading when I was 8 or 9, is Grimms Fairy Tales, and loved it so much that I still have that book in my collection. Memories for sure

  7. It's such fun to find a book from our childhood. This little book is darling and I can see why you loved it. I loved Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy books and I still have mine! My dear mother saved them for me. There were other books I loved but have never found. Maybe someday I'll find some of them but I so enjoy my Raggedy Ann books and my Raggedy Ann doll that I still have, too.

  8. What a cute little book! I wish I had some of my favorites from my childhood too. I always loved when my mom would read "Put Me In The Zoo" by Dr. Seuss.

  9. This was my favorite book as a wee one and I insisted that my Daddy read it to me every night. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Milo-Winter-BARNYARD-BABIES-Merrill-linen-3415-EC-1936/171690320614?_trksid=p2054897.c100204.m3164&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140407115239%26meid%3Df45dd3ee3a6d429299333a7fe8309c5b%26pid%3D100204%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D29%26sd%3D181689676311

    It was published in 1936, and I was born a mere 6 years later. As you can see, you only think you are old. ;-)

  10. How wonderful that you found your book!

    Years ago, my mom told me about a book that her father read to her as a child. She knew the story, but she couldn't remember the name. After searching for years on the internet, I finally found the book on Alibris.com. I surprised her at Christmas with it about two years ago and let me tell you.... my mom doesn't cry, but she shed happy tears that day :)

    My favorite was Green Eggs and Ham.

  11. How wonderful that you found it!!! Years ago, I found a Raggedy Ann and Andy alarm clock on eBay that was exactly like the one I had as a child. I bought it. I still have it but it doesn't talk anymore like it did when I first purchased it. Such great childhood memories!!! : )
