Hereby presenting an excerpt from A Book of the Country and Garden (1903) by H. M. Batson. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by F. Carruthers Gould and A. C. Gould.

One of these was a mongrel fox-terrier named Joe, and so well did he understand all our conversation that when we did not wish him to know our plans we were forced to speak in Spanish, for he was quite good at elementary French. If we spoke English the matter was hopeless.

“Where are you driving to-day?”

“I am going to pay a call at Butterbridge.”

“Shall you take le petit chien?”

By saying “le petit chien” instead of “the dog” Jim would imagine that he was using all the necessary wiles of dissimulation.

“No, they don’t like dogs. I must leave him at home.”

An hour or so would go by, and our efforts to find Joe would become exasperating; so in despair I would start to find le petit chien waiting for me a mile away smiling by the roadside. He always smiled when he had got the better of me, but I only once heard him laugh aloud.

Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Story of a Candy Rabbit (1920) by Laura Lee Hope. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by Harry L. Smith.

Feeling rather lonesome, the Rabbit looked for some one to whom he might talk. He saw cakes of soap, towels, and wash cloths. There was also a large sponge in a wire basket hanging over the edge of the bathtub.

“I have heard that sponges are animals,” said the Candy Rabbit. “I wonder if this one is alive and will speak to me. I’ll try. Hello there, Mr. Sponge!” he called.

Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Hollow Tree and Deep Woods Book (1900) by Albert Bigelow Paine. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by J. M. Conde.

“Well, the Hollow Tree people had never heard of Santa Claus. They knew about Christmas, of course, because everybody, even the cows and sheep, know about that; but they had never heard of Santa Claus. You see, Santa Claus only comes to Mr. Man’s house, but they didn’t know that, either, so they
thought if they just hung up their stockings he’d come there, too, and that’s what they made up their minds to do. They talked about it a great deal together, and Mr. ‘Possum looked over all his stockings to pick out the biggest one he had, and Mr. Crow he made himself a new pair on purpose.”
