I think we share a Ladybird book, if you wouldn't mind confirming the title, as mine is listed as

Learning with Mother, the Ladybird under five series: Book 4. See the cover here:

Yours is
Learning with Mother Book 4 -- probably the same, but it's best to be sure.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
Because you own this vintage cookbook set, I invite you and the 38 other owners of this cookbook to a group talk in COOKBOOKERS, on META GIVEN'S MODERN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COOKING. I'm curious about how you came to own this cookbook and what is your favorite part about the set. Thank you! See
Thanks for providing the cover images for the lovely Ladybird books, "What to Look For in Spring," etc., but you're missing one! I'd like to come back to your profile and library and browse one of these days. I think we're kindred spirits! (And I almost moved to Maine 29 years ago instead of to the mountain south, and I always imagine that other life.) Happy New Year to you and yours. -- Jane
Hello, I'm trying to drum up some action in the Cookbookers group since I just joined. Love your name! That's how I feel, but only when I'm arguing with my teenagers :)
Amatuer and mostly lousy cook. Just love reading cookbooks and collecting them is a hobby. Too old for anything else.
Thanks, oldmom! I was finally able to fix one of the two Beatrix Potter problems - the other one, crediting her with a book about manatees that was really written by Tom Dietz, still won't be corrected. Several people have tried on that one but it just won't fix.

I don't know how old you are relative to me but mine would probably think the same of me.

Also your comment to opinicus got left on my page :)

BTW My kids say "thanks...we'll never own shoes again. It was bad enough she had a severe obsession with cookie molds and books but now you've done it"

Hey Mom! I'm really jealous of all your cookbooks! Major book envy!
