When I saw this old book for sale and in pristine condition, I could not resist purchasing it. Upon receiving the book, I was finally, able to see what I had been missing on pages 78/79 in my dad’s well loved copy, that had been torn out. This is one of the books that I grew up with, looking at the pictures mostly, and I was probably the one responsible for the torn pages.  “Favorite Tales” is a favorite book (sentimental) in my collection of antique and vintage children’s books.

Today I’m off to my first regional SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) conference. I can’t wait to see, hear and learn more about Children’s books and all of the aspects that will be covered there. Plus, for added fun, there will be an illustrator workshop and portfolio review with Deborah Zempke!
