My first babysitting job came when I was about 11.
My twin sister and I took turns caring for
my mom's co-worker's baby daughter.
Fast-forward about 30 years, when I caught up
with mother and daughter on Facebook and Etsy.
Beth graciously sent me nearly a complete set
of ChildCraft books from 1942
since she knew they would sell well on Etsy.
They are all filled with wonderful stories,
gorgeous period illustrations
and child-reading tips,
though some of those are very out-dated!
Each one is now available for sale in my Etsy shop.
In the meantime, I am enjoying them myself.
