While in Baltimore last month, I went to Ellicott City, a little old mill town which is now is known for being quaint; antiques shops and cafes. I found (and bought) a children’s book from the 1970s, one which I quickly realized I’d had as a child. It’s one of the books that taught me how to draw (especially horses, but people, too). The gouache paintings therein, by Janet & Anne Grahame Johnstone, are fantastic. There are several more after the jump.

What’s the name of this book?
“A Book of Children’s Rhymes”— and the title has the A B and C large, in bright colors.
Thank you so much! I too had this book as a child, and have been trying to figure out which Anne’s and Janet Graham Johnstone book it was. There are so many! I seen the pictures in the one you have, and I know that is the book. Thank you thank you!
