I was fortunate to be able to

I was fortunate to be able to buy this set in a house with the 3 gift travel books a few years back. Its a treasurer, almost as precious as my own blue set from the 1940's. From a family of 8, it is a wonder that that survived intack. I have my oldest sister Mary Louise, now deceased, to thank for keeping them safe through the years. She would read while ironing to my brothers and I in the evenings before bedtime. She gave them back to me as an adult/mother after I started my Happy Tymes business in the 80's.

Thanks for your effort in creating this site.

I love the image of your

I love the image of your sister ironing and reading the Book House aloud to you all. What wonderful family memories it brings!

The Book House, In The Nursery

I still have my green copy of In The Nursery. It was given to me when i was a child. It is in very bad condition, and all of the pages are loose. But it can still be read with care. The most worn pages are "The little Engine That Could", my favorite. I am 83 years old at this time, and the book has been with me all my life. I was pleased to find this information on "My Bookhouse".

A wonderful comment!

Thanks so much for writing. It's hard to explain how important the Book House was to those of us who grew up with it! What a treasure you have. I hope you write your note in the book!  Suzanne
