This Friday's book is A Present for the Princess written by Janie Lowe Paschall and illustrated by Elizabeth Webbe, and published in 1959.
This is such a sweet book, and I adore all the precious, soft images!
Who wouldn't want to be born in a pretty white castle with animals as your friends!!
Such a sweet little princess, with those adorable blue birds!!
Is this boy not adorable!! Lovin' his cute outfit, too!! He didn't live far from the castle, and was blind, "But he could feel in his heart the whole world around him." I just love that!!
He heard the princess was coming, and wanted to give her a present.
The little boy goes through his garden to see what to give her, and decides a strawberry!! That is my favorite part!! Oh, how I love strawberries!
Beautiful image!! This would be great framed!!
The little boy asked for help so his strawberry would grow.
And it did!
When the day came for the princess to visit, he went to check on the strawberry. It was ready to be picked!
Love this image of the two! The little boys strawberry "It was the best strawberry in the whole, wide, wonderful world."
The Princess loved the strawberry, and thought it was the nicest present she ever had. She ate the strawberry, and kissed the little boy to thank him!! How sweet!! I love the last page. What do you think is it the blush or the strawberry juice making this precious boys cheeks red?
Look at his face!! Couldn't you just squeeze those cheeks!! Such a cute book!! Have a wonderful Friday, and a Happy Mother's Day!!
