Day 56 - Corduroy


This was one of my favorite books when I was a little girl. One of our local bookstores is closing down one of its locations and has all their books marked down. I was elated to find this book on clearance and had to buy it to share with my little girl.

I don't remember that book, but it's nice that you found a copy for your girl.

Lucky for you to find this wonderful classic. Sad that your bookstore closed though. This shot, with the shelved books in the background is terrific.

My kids are teens now but I have to say that the fondest memories I have of their childhoods was reading to them and watching their love of books blossom....

I love this book too. I teach reading to 5th graders and I still love to pull out old favorite picture books to share with them. They still love to be read to even at 10 years old.

I love your composition on this shot and the yummy colors. I don't remember reading it as a child, but I'll be sure to get a copy for my kids. We love books around here. I also wanted to thank you for your sweet, sweet comment earlier today. It brought a tear to my eye and yet a smile to my face. I feel the same and am glad to have a friend like you in my life. Thank you!

Yeah, that's a great book. Glad you managed to get it for you and your daughter. I like the composition and processing. The pic gives me the urge to sit down and go through some my old favourites.

Lois said...

The composition is very effective to showcase the book. This could be framed for a child's room.
