What book have you had the longest?
This is the best picture I can manage. This book was given to me in 1950 by my grandparents--it has their signatures on it--and I think you can guess why. Written and illustrated by Laura Bannon, it is the story of Patty, her art class at a museum and how she learns to paint her favorite thing, her cat. The story is much too detailed for a two-year old, but once I could follow a longer narrative I loved it. The illustrations are excellent and so is the story.
What book, still in your possession, have you had the longest?
