It was my first Sunday School prize - The Golden Picture Book of Puppies. I loved this book with a passion!!!!!
Me and my brother.
I must have been about this age when I got it and it went everywhere with me - even on holiday. My parents had to read it to me each night and I heard it so often that I thought I could read it. I knew this story off by heart and thought I was such a big girl being able to say words like Dandie Dinmont. I used to play at schools with my wee brother and he had to sit and listen to me "read" the book to him (well he would sit for a little while)!
The pictures are mostly in black and white, but there are two in colour - so cute!
This has to be my find of the year - I've been wallowing in nostalgia ever since I found it. I even had to tell the chap in the shop all about it, I was so excited to find it! Have you ever done that?
However, some things, especially words, do change!
Don't try this at home!!!!!
