Dr. Seuss was prescient!

So I officially started my pre-1985 children's book collection today. I went to gather these 'banned hazardous materials' from my store shelves and fell in love. When I opened the cover to this 1965 Fox In Socks book, I hit the floor laughing. Turns out that Dr. Seuss was prescient and foresaw this whole CPSIA thing. To view my entire collection of a dozen books so far, click here.

Excellent! I'm also collecting pre-1985 books. Some of the books you have in your link were my favorites growing up. Loved "10 Apples On Top" and have my copy from childhhood. My kids read it too and we weren't poisoned with lead!
My mom's church had a book sale last month and I bought all the children's books from the 40's thru the 60's that I could afford cause I knew this nonsense was coming. Save The Books!
