The Magic of Everyday Things

By Seymour Reit. Illustration by June Goldsborough. (1963)

In addition to the fantastic illustration styles of vintage books, I LOVE to check out the styling. What the kid’s are wearing, what the home’s look like. This sweet little book has GOBS of awesomeness. Let’s take a peek!

OK, we need to see that stripey number one more time….

Sigh. So much fun. Now if only we could hop inside the pages of these stories and move right in!

    Alix I am so jealous of your colorful book collection! Also I want those jammies for Judah, are those dogs are llamas on the jammies?

  2. Corey Moortgat says

    Yes! We have this book, as well as several other in this set. I LOVE them!

    Hi
    I had these books as a child. I still have most of them, but am missing some. One in particular had a story about a dog who is left alone, and ends up getting a rotten tomato out of the bin and rolling it all around the house. Wondering if you know which book this story is in, and what it was called?
    Thanks

    I found this book at Goodwill and it is so darn charming! I love the basic ideas–that all you need is yourself to do awesome stuff. I also love the vintage styling–the kids bedroom is all kinds of adorable–and I too love that stripey chair. My 4 year old daughter loves it.
