I got a new book in the mail, addressed to me and everything. The only thing is, I didn't order it! I have no idea who sent it to me or anything. Mysterious. It was a pleasant surprise to come home to. This version of "Little Black Ant" was published in 1939 and has beautiful pictures and a cute little childhood story and (here's the best part) the old book smell that makes me take a deep breath and smile. To top it off it had pressed leaves in some of the pages. I wonder how old they are! Has anyone else ever heard of this darling little book?
