What I Didn’t Buy On Black Friday

Grandpa

Thanksgiving day my mother-in-law brought the rolls and mashed potatoes. My father-in-law brought me a stack of Black Friday ads. He’s so sweet. He knows I love looking through the weekly ads in the Sunday paper. I like the idea of finding the perfect gift or a great sale. It’s like a little treasure hunt.

I didn’t end up going out for anything. I stayed home. Maybe it’s because treasures really don’t end up in print ads in the Sunday paper. That’s what’s great about discovering a treasure. 

I found this little golden treasure at a Salvation Army thrift store.

A 1954 early edition (Second Printing) Little Golden Book, The Friendly Book by Margaret Wise Brown

Illustrated by Garth Williams

When I read her books I just want to cuddle up my little kiddos and squeeze them tight. Something quite like Garth Williams’ illustration of the little girl squeezing the bunny rabbit on the cover of The Friendly Book.
