more birds

My mother is an early childhood educator who has collected quite the library of children’s books over the years. While I was home during the holidays, I helped her weed through books upon books in her downsizing efforts (as my parents are in the process of moving). So I was happy to take a few vintage books off her hands, mainly a number of “See Jane” sort of early-readers from the 50s.

The Richard Scarry book that I’ve scanned below was too big to take home so I ripped out the pages I wanted, and sadly recycled the rest. This was one of the least detailed spreads in the entire book and what drew me in, initially, were all the size comparisons I could make between the different bird species. A good reference, although not entirely accurate. (click to see larger)
