A Trip Down Memory Lane

Sister (we call each other this...) and I have recently become pretty much obsessed with Little Golden Books. While I have always liked them, I have only recently begun to truly appreciate them. I think many people are drawn to Little Golden Books because they take us back to our childhoods. One particular book was my very favorite as a child. It was called The Wonderful School by May Justus. I would read it over and over again. The main character is a teacher (as are Sister and I), and maybe that was the appeal for me. The teacher's name is Miss Tillie O'Toole, and she is wonderful! Maybe my love for Tillie O'Toole helped to fuel my desire to become a teacher. I guess we'll never know. Anyway... I have recently found and ordered my own copy of the book, and it is just as wonderful as I remembered. I'll leave you with the words from the last page... I am sure there was never a happier school than the one that was taught by Miss Tillie O'Toole. :-) #littlegoldenbook #littlegoldenbooks #vintagebooks #collectiblebooks #TheWonderfulSchool #MissTillieOToole #Booksforkids #booksaboutteachers #teachergift
