The Child and the Little Golden Book of Words


This rare out-of-print gem by Selma Lola Chambers, originally published in 1948, comes from The Little Golden Book of Words (public library). The charming vintage illustrations are by Gertrude Elliott and I have to say that her essential associations between words and their pictorial representations do have something to say about the era they were born in.
