Item of the Day: Little Swimmers 1960 Vintage Children's Book

I absolutely love this book, Little Swimmers by Virginia Hunter with Dorothy Grider illustrations!  It reminds me of my childhood, in both the style of illustration, and also the pictures of children learning to swim.  Dorothy Grider is one of my personal favorite baby boomer era children's illustrators.  She is not mentioned as often as some other illustrators this vintage, but I think she captures a time and place so perfectly.  You'll find this book:  Little Swimmers at Birdhouse Books
