Yes, I have quite the collection of children's books. I even have my story book from the 1950's. 'The Velveteen Rabbit' was chosen for the letter 'V' because I had no other work I could use. Again, it is an illustrated edition which is so important when reading to children. The book was first published in 1922. Toys that talk? Of course!
Village at Grand Traverse Commons. Take an old sanitarium from the 1800's and bring it into the 21st Century and you have the Village. I have not visited since it has been completed. When I was last there I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Stella and some shops were open. If you are staying in Traverse City or the area, it is a must-see.
