this thing is still about things

One Kitten for Kim


When I was a child, I had a few favorite books that unfortunately were destroyed or lost (not by me) a long time ago. When I had children, I thought about these books so much–I wanted my kids to enjoy the same awesome books that I did.

This is what Ebay and Amazon were made for.

One book that I was able to find that was actually affordable is One Kitten for Kim. Obviously I purchased one of the used ones. If you want to buy me a new or collectible one, just comment and I’ll send you my address ;)

The story is of Kim and his quest to find a home for the litter of kittens that his cat Geraldine had. He keeps one and loads the other six into a basket, into his wagon, and hits the pavement in his neighborhood. Adventure begins!

I wanted to share some pictures from this beautiful book. It was written and illustrated in 1969. It made me happy as a child, and now it makes me happy as a mom.

Photobucket Mustard and aqua and 1969. I’m inspired to knit something with these colors now!

I love this book. If you are interested in helping me complete my childhood collection, I do not yet have a copy of The Sheep of the Lal Bagh or Pirates in the Park. Books = happy!
