Check out this amazing coffee table book that I borrowed from the library - The Hanna Barbera Treasury! Many of us have happy memories of watching Hanna-Barbera cartoons, back when "Saturday morning cartoons" was still a thing. I am trying to make more of an effort to show my kids some of my favourites from childhood - thank goodness for YouTube! Which Hanna- Barbera show or character was your favourite?

I was so excited to find the book-and-record version of It's a Small World, although without the record, not that it matters since I don't have a record player anyway! I'm pretty sure I remember having this as a kid. I would love to take my kids to see the ride at Disney one day. The amazing Mary Blair designed the look of the Small World ride. Sorry for the sideways pictures at the bottom - I'm using BlogPad Pro for IPad and I can't for the life of me figure out how to rotate them.

Look at this sweet Strawberry Shortcake book I found in the library discards! Are you feeling like winter will never end? We'll see what the groundhog says in a few days. We've been lucky so far we haven't had a ton of snow to shovel. One of these days I shall have to do a post with some pics of my youngest daughter's first birthday last year - did a Strawberry Shortcake theme.

I found this adorable Christmas book from 1950 at our local recycling and used items centre. Little angels Pigtails, Crewcut, and Touslehead argue over who has polished his or her star the shiniest. Touslehead has given up hope of his star ever shining until he realizes that it is the Christmas Star that has helped the Wise Men find baby Jesus. There is even a children's musical based on this book. Christmas is coming quickly and my 3 little girls are looking forward to it. Although I think they would like for there to be snow, which we have only had a dusting of so far. My 9 year old has a small solo part in her children's choir performance this weekend so we are looking forward to that.
