April 9 – Cherish an Antique Day

It’s Cherish an Antique Day!

When it comes to picture books, many of my favorites are antiques!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a lot of the new books too, but classics only become classic when they’re old!   I remember hearing somewhere that something had to be 50+ years old to be considered an antique. So let’s dust off a few ‘oldies but goodies’ today.

Some of these are all older than I am…and they’re still in print!
