Sweet Little Poem

There is so much to see on the internet - easy to spend way too much time just going from one blog to another and to different websites.  I love things from the 20's and 30's, especially relating to children.  Could it be because my childhood was in the thirties?   Talking Pinterest again, but I found my way to a blog http://loverforbooks.blogspot.com/ that is full of beautiful illustrations with many of them from my time.  This sweet little illustration (the illustrator is unknown) accompanies a little poem that I have heard before.  It is by Dorothy Aldis.

Little
I am the sister of him,
And he is my brother.
He is too little for us
To talk to each other.

So every morning I show him
My doll and my book;
But every morning he still is
Too little to look.

Hope you enjoyed my little find!

Well I didn't grow up in the thirties, but I think I should have!

I grew up in the sixties, and I remember that poem. I think it was in the Childcraft children's poetry volume of the World Book Encyclopedia that we had. I read that book often. Thanks for the memory!
