more books from my childhood: Who Comes to Your House

Things are in full holiday swing around here—more on that later, but for now, a peek inside another book from my childhood while I catch my breath.

As I thumbed through this book, I didn’t remember much about the words, but I definitely remembered the pictures.

First up—a huge purple rhinoceros.  Strangely fascinating—I never knew anyone who was visited by something like that!  I always wondered why the sender even bothered trying to wrap it up!

This old lady was another of my favorite pictures—she looks so spunky in her turquoise tights (very 70’s), and still delivering flowers at her age!

Speaking of 70’s fashions, I think it’s hilarious that this window washer is wearing white pants and shoes—how practical!

your house 6

Last up the plumber—do you think the vine growing down the pipe might have something to do with the problem?!

Even though I didn’t remember much about the text of the book from when I was little, I was pleasantly surprised as Spud &  I read through each poem about a person who might visit the house —much better rhyming than I’ve read lately in most children’s books.
