Vintage children's books from the 50s, 60s and 70s

It's been a while since I've blogged about vintage children's book illustrations - here are three more I bought  recently from the States - the first one is by Alice and Martin Provensen, the second illustrated by Ylva Kallstrom and the third by Marylin Hafner.

oh thank you so much for sharing, I'd forgotten about 'Roses are Red, are Violets Blue?' - my godmother had it and I used to read it at her hosue - time to get a copy for my kids, the pictures are gorgeous!

Hooray for the Provensen's! They seem to have such a great range of styles of illustration - this one looks really cool. Love vintage childrens books - the pictures are so often addictive - super cute & simple in style

What a great post, thank you. This got me thinking about some brilliant vintage kid's books I have knocking around... The books I am most drawn to for my own children have a definite retro vibe about them.
