When I was a tiny girl, I had a book called
Peggy and Me and I LOVED it. I guess I was about three when I got it and my daddy would read it to me. I grew up, as little girls tend to do, and my book got lost somewhere in the shuffle.
I never forgot it, though. There was one line in the book, "It's cheery to walk in the rain, with coat and umbrella all the same". I couldn't say umbrella, it came out "umbrebla", and TO THIS DAY, my daddy will recite that line and say umbrebla.
When I got internet access about 10 years ago, I started looking for another copy of my book. I tried all the children's bookstores online, I tried eBay, I looked everywhere for it and I couldn't find it. For 10 years, I searched for this book!! The other night, I tried eBay again and guess what??? There it was!!! I learned a lot about it that I didn't know, like it was copyrighted in 1968 by Whitman Publishing Company. Good info to have when you're looking for something! Ha!
I got it today and I just had to share it. I'm so happy to have it back!!
