I'm a huge fan of Junior Deluxe Editions! In fact, I'm in the process of building a special bookshelf in our yet-to-be-born daughter's room to hold our collection.

And thanks, Rachael, for including that link to our Junior Deluxe Editions Flickr pool. I appreciate it!

These are great books with fantastic illustrations. I don't find too many of these Junior Deluxe editions around my area. Maybe I need to look harder though.

that's too bad...it seems that i see them in cycles, sometimes there are none, sometimes there are tons! hope you find some and thanks for visiting :)
