With the warm weather, parents are out in droves pushing their young ones in strollers. I went through my books and found some details to show you. The strollers are made with wire frames and button wheels. This first one with the red-haired mother is from my 1997 picture book, You and Me: Poems of Friendship.
Here’s a stroller from another page of You and Me with a baby that’s about 1″ long.
This mother and child is from my 2001 book In the Heart. Autographed copies are available here.
This double stroller is being pushed by the old woman who lived in a shoe, from my book, Pocketful of Posies. The children are about 1 1/2″ tall.
Note: See other posts in the Close-ups series archive here.
I just can’t wait to see A Pocket Full of Posies! love, Beth
