Sayer and I just finished up story time and he chose all of my Art Seiden books to read today. He really is fond of them so I thought it would be a good time to share my little vintage collection with you. I've been collecting anything with Art Seiden illustrations for a while now and my favorites are from the '60's Romper Room - Wonder Book - series. Sayer loves the train books in particular. But here is a tiny peek into each one...
The Romper Room Safety Book - Story by Nancy Claster- Pictures by Art Seiden- Wonder Books 1965
Puppies, pictures by Art Seiden 1980
Golden Clock Book by Ben Ross Berenberg - pictures by Art Seiden 1970
The Little Engine That Laughed by Alf Evers - Illustrated by Art Seiden 1950
The Train to Timbuctoo by Margret Wise Brown - pictures by Art Seiden- Little Golden Book 1951
The Romper Room Do Dee Book of Manners by Nancy Claster - pictures by Art Seiden - Wonder Books 1977
Yep, we read them all today. This Manners book is really funny- it cracks Sayer up too. There is even a "mother check off chart" to see if your child is a "Do Bee". I won't tell you the results of our check list. But I will tell you that Sayer likes the "Don't Bee" boy's outfit better, hmmm. I will bring these out again to share more another time. This is just a taste. I really enjoy looking at how Art Seiden's illustrations have evolved over the years, along with how much they have influenced current illustrators today. Hope you liked our Art Seiden story time...
