Vintage children’s books

This copy of Petunia by Roger Duvoisin is from an Etsy shop called Vintage Kids’ Books My Kid Loves, a store full of old and amazing children’s books including classics like Green Eggs and Ham. I love the idea of this, recycling old books, and I can’t think of a better way to save money this season. Those prices are unbeatable, and even though Leta can’t appreciate the vintage quality yet, I am so satisfied that her bookshelf is not just a sea of princess pink.
