Here are four "older" picture books I found going through a school library. I snagged a few (with permission) to post here. Does anyone know about children's books? They are, of course, stamped on the inside and not in great shape but still intact.

    You are most welcome. When I started "collecting" a couple of years ago, I started rummaging through EVERYTHING I owned. I had discovered a Kitchen Kraft jug that I left haphazardly on my front porch...so. I went through my pile of kids books I pick up at the thrift for my grandson to use when he comes over and found a 1942 edition of the Three Little Pigs and discovered it was not only a beautiful cover (illustrated by Mary Cameron) but worth over a 100 bucks! I framed it and now it hangs in my grandson's bedroom. One of my favorite all time 'finds'.
