When I was about 6 years old my mom and dad bought me this book for Christmas. Well it wasn’t actually this book, it was one like it.
At the same time they bought a copy for my two year old niece, Jody. Both of us LOVED our books. We read them all the time and to this day, both of us can recite the ENTIRE book by memory.
When my kids were growing up, I looked EVERYWHERE for a copy. My sister said, “Oh, Jody’s copy is here at my house. You can have hers.” I took it and faithfully read it my girls. A little while later, Jody was expecting and was looking for her “Little Mommy” book and found out I had it. Well I thought I better give it back. Since then my sister, and Jody, and I are always scouring ebay, garage sales and antique shops looking for The Little Golden book, “Little Mommy”. We all wanted a copy or two.
I am happy to say while I was visiting the Amish general store yesterday I found a copy.
It isn’t exactly the same as the cover is different but the inside is all the same!!! They had two copies so I bought them both. I found out that Amazon has them too!! Just in case any of you have been looking for a copy here’s the link. Little Mommy (Little Golden Book)
I just love the illustrations…
I love the concept of playing house….
I love the whole book….
I love being a grown up Mommy to my five “little children”.
If you love children’s books like I do, you might be interested in this book I found at the same Amish store….My Favorite Farm Animal Friends
It’s a board book so there aren’t a lot of pages…but again the illustrations are amazing. This book has a gentle Christian theme to it that is just perfect.
I can see this being the perfect book to give as a baptism present. I never know what to give for baptism presents…
I’m so glad that I found the “Little Mommy” book and the new farm board book. I never dreamed I’d find it at the Amish store.
Don’t you wish childhood now days was a little more like the illustrations of the book?
