Let’s Play House — Lois Lenski, 1944

I was excited to find a copy of this Lenski book because, although I have seen the title in her bibliography,  I’ve never  seen any of the illustrations.  I don’t remember having any Lenski books as a child, but I bought “The Big Book of Mr. Small” for my son, Elliott, when he was little, and he loved it.  I’ve been a Lois Lenski fan ever since.

Whoever owned this book also loved it because it’s a mess.  The spine is broken; the pages are dark brown, loose and chipping; and someone tried to repair the book by using cellophane tape to re-attach the pages to the cover.  Here are some of my favorite illustrations from the book.
