Early Present

My husband let me open a Christmas present early and look at what I got!

My brother and I had a copy of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. I love these stories!! Mary Anne the steam shovel works so hard and is so charming she's irresistible. And I think The Little House is a really special story also. I can definitely see Ms. Burton's influence on me- both her art and her stories. Look at this great photo of her!


  1. I loved this too Jill! Wasn't Virginia Lee Burton beautiful - I've never seen a picture of her before. I wonder where those children are now...

  2. I still have Mike Mulligan. Did you get The Little House?
