This Friday's book is a classic Rip Van Winkle adapted from Washington Irving's Legend by Dorothy Bell Briggs and illustrated by Anne Sellers Leaf, and published in 1962.
I adore all the sweet faces, especially the little girl and boy!
What a friend indeed Rip was!! But, his wife wasn't too happy about him not tending to their houses needs! So, he went off into the woods to walk his anger off. Isn't the little girls outfit so cute!
Lovin' the long beard on the fellow carry the keg with apple juice, right? This is a children's book. ;)
Bowling in the forest sounds fun!! Love the little yellow bird, and all the colorful socks!
Strike!! Look at the fellow doing his cute dance!
Rip fell asleep, and when he awoke up he wondered what he would tell his wife for being away all night! Oh, my!
Rip had slept for twenty tears, and had no idea! Imagine that! I see a sweet bunny hiding behind a tree!
Rip couldn't find his dog, so he headed for town, and he was quite the sight!
Rip asked around, "Does nobody know Rip Van Winkle?", but no one knew who he was until a sweet old lady came to his side.
So, Rip told his story, and whenever the thunder rolls, the sweet children would say, "that the little men are up in the mountains bowling."
