Don't know if you've seen a current copy of BBC Homes and Antiques magazine, but there's an interesting article on Ladybird books. As they've always been a particular favourite, it started me wondering just what titles we have. Quite a few as it turns out.
The 'What to look for' series is a special favourite because of the Tunnicliffe illustrations.
Then a few on more on nature and the countryside...I'm sure I had these when I was small
And then all the stories that are so familiar. Some of these were bedtime favourites...I must have read The Little Red Hen and Chicken Licken every night for at least a year. Funny how they lose their appeal!
Most of our copies aren't in exactly pristine condition, as you can see...plenty of tears and wax crayon in evidence...but then apart from a few rarities (needless to say we don't own any of those) it's still possible to buy copies for just a couple of quid. Very good value.
