message 1: by Chris (new)

Chris Meads | 94 comments I have been racking my brains out here. But I read a book when I was younger about a girl who had a spider plant. I think she grew it and gave the offshoots or babies to others. The cover of the book had a picture of the girl and the spider plant. I just can't remember the title.

Charlotte (charlotte_riggle) | 93 comments Can you provide a hint about the dates the book might have been published? It sounds vaguely familiar to me.


message 3: by Chris (new)

Chris Meads | 94 comments I believe that I got the book back in the late 60s or early 70s.


message 5: by Chris (new)

Chris Meads | 94 comments That might be the book and I probably got a later edition. The picture I remember was a young girl in braids holding the plant and the background was maybe buildings. It was a realistic picture, almost like a painting/illustration. Thanks for helping me out here.

Chris Meads | 94 comments That's it. The bottom photo is the one I remember. She's holding the plant and smiling. Thanks so much.

You're very welcome.
I couldn't have done it without Charlotte, though.

Since this has been solved, I'm moving it to the Archive folder.
