Growing up in the 1950's and 60's I remember a set of Childcraft books in our house. I loved the green bindings, going from dark to light.

However, I didn't have a special person to read them to me. Instead I mostly read them to my younger siblings. Nice read, took me back!
Glowing tribute to an aunt with an interesting lifestyle. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for introducing me to a grat lady. Your writing made it real to me. Keep up the good words.
Your descriptions are so vivid and characterization so rich, that I feel like I really got to know Aunt Florence. A lovely piece.
Judy, your character, Aunt Florence, popped off the page and I loved the way you wove interesting tidbits about children's literature into your story. At our house it was Lands and Peoples I pulled off the shelves flanking the fireplace, but I do remember Childcraft also. Thanks for great read.
