Recently while thrifting I found four more of my favorite Junior Deluxe Edition books. It always feels like Christmas when I do find them. The books are hardbound and come in a variety of colors with beautiful embossed designs on the cover, back, and spine. Often when I come in the living room to check on Henrik I find him sprawled on the floor with a stack of the Junior Deluxe books looking at the pictures. He loves them just as much as I do. Last night we read 'Puss in Boots' and it brought back memories of my childhood reading with my mother. I can't wait until he is a little older and we can read the longer chapter books together.
Some of my favorites that I've collected over the years are: The Wizard of Oz, The Wind in the Willows, Grimm's Fairy Tales, Andersen's Fairy Tales, Robin Hood, and National Velvet. If you're interested in collecting them too, you can find them here.
