Just in time for Spring gardening vignettes, this adorable vintage Children's Gardening Book written and illustrated in color by Frances Ingersoll. A "Bonnie Book" Printed by S. Lowe Company of Kenosha, Wisconsin in 1954. This little darling has been read and loved by a child. It used to come with a little packet of seeds on the front, these were hopefully planted by some young one and watered and oohed and ahhhed over!
Inside is the most charming story of Peter, who lived in a big city but wanted a garden. He moves to a house, and buys pansies to plant in his garden. It is a charming story with delightful illustrations. This book has a bit missing from the front cover, and the front cover has been taped, so not for the perfectionist! But this is so sweet ~ perfect for this time of year on a little stand with all your vintage gardening books and antique gardening tools! Measures 8" x 6~1/4", 19pgs.
