A mother reads to her children, depicted by Jessie Willcox Smith in a cover illustration of a volume of fairy tales written in the mid to late 19th century.
“We have that book at home.”
“There is something utterly charming about little kids recognizing the books they have at home when they come to the bookstore. Little ones come in every day and almost all under the age of five feel the need to announce when they see a book they know from home. There is comfort in the familiar. The characters in the books have become friends, the artwork can be anticipated and there are no surprises.” MORE Josie Levitt yesterday in Publisher’s Weekly ShelfTalker, “In which children’s booksellers ponder all things literary, artistic, and mercantile.”
