Gather round kiddies! It's time to read a story with Aunty Alex [cue applaus and laugh track]. This week we have the brilliant Art Seiden and a book called, Never Pat a Bear: A Book About Signs. This little story has everything I love about vintage kid's books: a slightly wacky story and colorful amazing illustrations. I especially love how kid's are dressed in books from the 60s and 70s. They're always wearing something fun. Ever noticed that kid's are wearing in today's book? Probably not, because most are dressed in very innocuous Gap-like duds. Take a gander at this fun story!
Never Pat a Bear, A Little Golden Book.
