"My School Day Autobiography"

The first pages are a list of her teachers and classmates.  (Click on pic to enlarge.)

Here are some of the autograph pages:

  1. What a sweet autograph book!
    That ginger bread quote is wonderful...

    Ann - would you mind if I'd post a photo of that autograph book quote in my blog? I'd attribute it to you (and Madeline) of course...

    Happy Thanksgiving!
