First Friday Tasha Tudor Book Review~Tasha Tudor's Treaure

Happy April! It's a new month and Easter is nearing. Don't you love this print by Tasha Tudor? I think it's perfect for spring with daffodils and a darling bunny.
I am getting so excited about my trip and I must confess, I have been spending a lot of time looking at my Tasha books and Pinterest boards in my spare time!

With Easter approaching, I thought it would be fun to explore this little set of books. The set of three is called Tasha Tudor's Treasure. It was originally published by Oxford University Press and later Henry Z Walck reprinted First Prayers and First Graces and encouraged Tasha to come up with a third book-
First Graces. He later published the three little books in a cardboard slipcover.

The set includes First Prayers, First Graces and More Prayers. Each has it's own book jacket. They are small, perfect for a child's little hands.

First Prayers was published in 1952 and is a collections of prayers including the Lord's Prayer, various grace before meals and of course, the 23rd Psalm.

First Graces was published in 1955 and is made up of 21 prayers of thanksgiving. This illustrations is about Thanksgiving. The pictures are so sweet and as usual, Tasha has chosen to feature children in her drawings.

More Prayers published in 1967 and is the last in the trio. The book shares scripture verses and more psalms.   This is a page from the book.

I have had this little set since the early 1980's and they are all very sweet. First Graces is my favorite of the three.

Waiting for Easter.
