“This is not a new idea, but it’s a great idea so we are ‘paying it forward,’” said TADL Director Metta Lansdale Jr. “The message behind the Little Free Library is simple and dovetails with TADL’s mission; it’s about building literacy as well as a sense of community.”

Antique 1900 Book Journal Model Painting Book For Young
Created from an antique copy of a children’s activity book “Model Painting Book for Young People”. I saved a lot of the original pages and added 50 piece of blank paper. Great looking antique picture on the front. The cover shows some great wear which gives it a wonderful old time look. I’ve listed most of the other pagers in my shop for purchase so check them out. They would be great for so many craft projects or framing.
Measures 8 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and includes 50 pieces of blank paper. For my Antique Book Journals I’ve selected books that are at least 100 years old. I’m looking for unique and wonderful subject matter and illustrations. I’m also using some beautiful 24lb weight ivory granite paper that is 50% post consumer recycled. This paper has a great feel and better matches the nice aged original pages from the books.
When I was in fifth grade a friend to my mom gave her several Honey Bunch books. They were her grown daughters that left them behind after she entered collage and no longer wanted them. I was not much of a reader, but after reading the first one that took me awhile, I eagerly read the next and the next and when I finished them all I wanted more. I wish I still had them with me
The Honey Bunch series of books were part of the Stratemeyer Syndicate of books which included the series Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and the Bobbsey Twins. This series was written under the pseudonym Helen Louise Thorndyke, and published for most of its life by Grosset & Dunlap. The series began in 1923 and chronicled Honey Bunch on various trips and adventures throughout the series.
