I’m looking for an old children’s book that my mom used to read to me but I can’t remember the title. It was about a mother and a young daughter who spent the day together getting ice cream and going to the beach. The beach was a New England looking type of beach, the illustrations were pastel in nature, maybe watercolors. I feel like it was called something like The Perfect Day or A Day at the Shore but those titles aren’t turning up results. I would have read it in the 80s and early 90s and it was not brand new then. It is not Beach Day, Day at the Seashore or The Seashore Book
I’m looking for a children’s book that I had in the mid 1970’s. It was a hardcover book and I believe it was oversized. The ‘first’ story was about a child (believe it was a girl) spending the day with her mommy. You then flipped the book upside down & over and there was a ‘second’ story about the child spending the day with his/her daddy and they went to the zoo. I remember a picture of them looking in the animal exhibit and the child is holding a balloon and I think they get ice cream. I’m pretty sure it’s people and not animals (i.e. not the Mercer Meyer little critter book).
This children’s book is about a mother and daughter who take a walk outside and look at different things on their walk. In particular, I remember that they looked at crocuses. The book was a large hardback book with a matte white cover. The illustrations were pastel colored, maybe using colored pencils. I remember that in at least one illustration the mother and daughter were holding hands. It was probably written around 1985 or a bit earlier, because I remember reading it with my mother when I was five or so. That’s all I can remember. Hopefully there are enough clues!
A picture book I read around 1995 about a woman with grown children who lived in different areas – a farm, the city, the mountains, the beach. She retired, bought an airstream(?) and visited each child before returning to the farm. An apple farm?
