some of my favorite books in my picture book collection originally belonged to my mother. one that is particularly special to her and me is a tall red book about horses illustrated by the dutchman, piet worm (great name!).
i especially enjoy the part of the story when the three horses go into town dressed up as women. piet perfectly captured the kind of costumes i loved as a child.
i also love my mother's copy of the the steadfast tin soldier. the inside cover always makes me smile.
p.s. it's really hard to take photos in colorado in november when you work full time. i miss the ecuadorian sun!
