"Show and Tell Friday!"
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
Hello everyone! Today I'm going to share some of my old books. I love everything about old books, especially how they feel and smell. I got these first two at a yard sale for 50 cents each.
A 1913 edition of Little Men by Louisa May Alcott.
I love the little scenes on the front cover.
It was a gift to Danny, from Joe Buckles in 1961.
This 1920 edition of Old Granny Fox by Thornton W. Burgess isn't in the best shape, but we will still enjoy reading the story.
Unfortunately, the illustrations have been ripped out, but the inside cover shows a very busy day at the pond.
The last book I have to show you is this 1906 edition of New Testament Primer by J.W. White. It was a birthday gift from my mother-in-law this past February.
It goes through the alphabet, sharing a bible verse for each letter.
It is filled with stories and sweet pictures.
Short lessons are also included: Slate Exercise and Writing Lesson.
Drawing and Stick Laying.
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
