My apologies for continuing with the library-love theme again today, but I recently found a book at a thrift store that I loved as a child and was interested in the cross-section of the house in the beginning of the book. Then, as I was going through some of EZ E's picture books (hunting for library cards, of course), I saw the same thing. I really have no idea where I'm going with this, but I just thought that these images were interesting and that this phenomena in picture books was even more interesting. Can you think of any other books where this same thing is happening? The images (from top to bottom) are from: The Apartment Book illustrated by Leo Hartas, Gus Was a Friendly Ghost illustrated by Seymour Fleishman, Life Story illustrated by Virginia Lee Burton, and Joe Kaufman's What Makes it Go? What Makes it Work? What Makes it Fly? What makes it float?.
