Mailbox Monday: Tell Me A Story

Last week I received one book in the mail, Tell Me A Story: Stories From A Childhood In Old New York,  from the author, who's also an artist, Bea Gold.  It's a book of thirty-six illustrated stories about growing up in "old" NY during the 1930s and 1940s.  As a former New Yorker (who still adores NY), this book will resonate with me in terms of place, at the very least. It looks like the perfect picture book to languish with in a cozy chair or couch over the course of an afternoon or evening.
