I am trying to identify a children’s book form the ’60 -early ’80.
It’s a book about flight and it features a child and father where the father is the pilot. There is a part in the book where the child flies the plane.
The book is heavily illustrated.
I would very much appreciate your help in locating it.
I am looking for a children’s picture book about a hedgehog named Harriet. The thing that I remember best was that she wore red high heels. This was my baby brother’s favorite book in the 70’s, so I am guessing it was released in the 60’s or 70’s. I don’t think that it would be older than that based on what I remember about the pictures. He recently passed away and my mother would really like to find a copy. I have done a lot of searching and have not been able to find even a clue. Please help!
The book that I have been unsuccessfully searching for is a book of short stories for girls that was published in the mid 1960’s. I recall purchasing it at a school book fair, most likely in junior high. The stories were mostly coming of age stories for teenage girls. One story told of a girl who did not fit in in high school, and she wanted new clothes that she believed would help. I remember she wanted to buy “shoes that look like ballet slippers and a string of pearls. I seem to recall that she also played the piano. Another story was about a girl who felt very unattractive and her dad said something to the effect of she was not a pretty girl but she was going to be a beautiful woman. I have searched for this collection of short stories for many years and have found many collections, but not this particular one. I would be very grateful if you might have any information about this elusive book. Thank you for any suggestions you may have.
1960s children’s picture book about a boy making a tall, stacked “Dagwood” style sandwich. The text is minimal – “a little of this, a bit of that, and some bread”. There is a girl (sister?) watching him in amusement. The focus is on the entertaining parade of sandwich ingrediants. The pictures are not full color and are sketchy and “modern” in feel. As a kid this book made me want to make sandwiches every time I read it!
I read this book in the early 1970s, I’m assuming it came from the 1960s. I don’t know the name of the book nor the publisher. But it was your typical high school romance of the time, where the popular boy in school falls for the less popular girl and her name was Beth.
Obviously the book resonated with me at the time because my name is Beth I would have read it around the age of 10 to 13. I always wondered if I could find the book and reread it is an adult what would I think of it.
This is a children’s 7/8 age group
From mid 60’s
Young girl enters over a wall of an abandoned house and ends up going back in time to carriage days and the family who lives there takes her in. Book ends with her returning back over the wall to home having not been gone long.
I am trying to locate a book from the 1960s or before about a cat with a wooden leg. It was very important to me because I grew up with a walking disability so the book meant great deal to me.
Someone threw it away, unfortunately, after my husband just died suddenly!
Could you possibly help me locate a copy or at least the name?
I would be eternally grateful!
I am looking for a children’s poetry book published early 60s or maybe 50s. It had a purple hardcover. I believe a girl was on it. Maybe she was swinging?
Three poems I remember are the moon’s the north wind’s cooky , Tyger Tyger and the mock turtle song.
I cannot remember the title. All I can remember is it was a fantasy book involving a girl who was given the power to swim underwater where she befriended a whale, a dolphin, and it involved rescuing her friends at the bottom of the ocean who were trapped there underneath a bubble. One key character that I remember was a “dimity bird” that was enchanted to move about. Presumably published in the ’60s, early ’70s.
A teen series of short novels/stories about rebuilding cars, girls, and all things teen. They were published and stocked in public school libraries late 50s early 60s.
