SibylM (sibyldiane) | 3 comments old fashioned childrens book illustration with girl in tree saying hello dogs to two collies
This is a bit backwards -- I have this illustration and am trying to identify the book it came from. I am guessing maybe 1930's due to the illustration style but am hardly an expert. I have no information beyond the picture itself. If anyone recognizes it, I would be very grateful!

I found a sold listing for the book on Etsy.

If you scroll down to the middle of the page, the listing is there. You can see some of the book's illustrations. The one above is in it.

SibylM (sibyldiane) | 3 comments Also, I want to say that by bizarre coincidence, I know some of the grandchildren of the author! I showed them this picture via Facebook and they confirmed what Tab found out and were delighted to see the picture.

My library has this. It is a book of children's stories, one for each month of the year.

I Google image searched the picture (right-clicked on the pic and chose "search Google for image").

I found out it was illustrated by Marguerite Davis and worked from there
