I have always loved the sweet scenes of the children in their everyday life situations.
I even have two little books from my own childhood and I would look over and over at my favourite pages longing for the 'home life' I would see depicted on the pages. I still love to look at these too.
We Help Daddy is one of the books I read over and over to our older boys when they were little. Interestingly enough we have two versions of this book. One in 1973 where the Daddy is smoking a pipe and a later version where the pipe has been edited out of the pictures, but the Daddy still has the same hand positions. Not until you see the two together can you see the difference.
We help Mommy.
I just love the way the children are involved in the day to day life in the home.
Baby Dear and she had me read this one for ages too....
The Boy with a Drum along with Baby Looks, and Baby's First Christmas, we have two versions we would read to him.
My Little Golden book about God
These are some of the books we have by Eloise Wilkin that are family favourites in our home! It is hard to find images or links to all the books we have by Eloise Wilkin to share with you , but these are the ones I have found.
I hope you have enjoyed meeting one of my favourite illustrators and how much I love seeing her little girl in our little girl.
Blessings to you and your homes,
