Ladybird....Ladybird.....Fly away home.......











I think I could safely say 
we all have owned a
'Ladybird' 
book
 as children.

Perfect reading for little minds and 
as I found out today for this
bigger mind.....
Of course this was made all the better
by reading....

  1. HeHe! I have 240 Ladybird books, sitting in a bookcase
    at the top of the stairs...Well..There my daughters
    actually, buying them for her in her early years, did l
    read them to her..Oh! Yes! So much so, l know most of them
    by heart! :).
    On the upside...l've notice that quite a few dated back in
    the 50's 60's are worth quite a bit of money now! They
    sit there with an occasional run over with a duster...And,
    sssssh! don't tell anyone, l do pull out a few at a time to
    read myself...! :0). =(^..^)=
