THIS IS...

I'm intrigued by the series of "This is" books by Miroslav Sasek. With stories about big cities and charming illustrations, this series dates as far back and the 1950s and can be quite expensive to collect. Sasek died all the way back in 1980. But oh, just think about it. Imagine the shelves in your nursery stocked with these stories. I'm sure the bebe would grow up with an urge to travel the world.

I love these books. I wish I had enough energy to collect the originals.
