Flashback Tuesday: The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden illustrated by Barbara Cooney
The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden and illustrated by Barbara Cooney is an old favorite that I had forgotten about. I was recently reminded of it when blogger Read Aloud Dad posted the cover on FB. I love this story of a little orphan girl who longs for a home and a doll who longs to be loved. This is a timeless and nostalgic tale that should be read year after year. It should be part of any family tradition. A must have Christmas book!
