Oh, How I Miss My Youth!

These lovely illustrations are from a book called Helping the Weatherman(1920), which is written and illustrated by Gertrude Alice Kay. I found this book looking through the piles and piles and piles of books my mother has collected over the years. We both have a great love for children's books, and this appreciation has only grown for me as I've gotten older. I love discovering unique children's book illustrations, as I find them absolutely inspiring. This book was a standout from the mountain of books that could surely fill a small public library!
