This is a reissue of an old and loved story about growing up. This book is the only children's story written by playwriter, Arthur Miller. Jane has a soft pink blanket that she got when she was a baby. The story tells how much she loved her "bata" and how she held it and slept with it all the time. The blanket eventually wore out, got smaller and was put in the bag of rags. When Jane realizes her blanket is missing, she cries until her mother gives her what is left of it. She realized that not only has her blanket gotten smaller, but she has gotten bigger and is growing up. She still wants her blanket at night and she hugs what is left of it. As the story tells of her life changing as she continues to grow up, she becomes less and less interested in her blanket, until one day, when she again notices it is missing. Her mother digs out what is left of it and again she sleeps with it in her room. There is a happy ending to the story. The illustrations are black and white except for the blanket which adds a nice contrast. A wonderful story to read to children as they are growing up and are beginning to not need that beloved blanket or toy to feel secure anymore. A great book to be on all family bookshelves.

Rating: 3.5/5 This is a reprint of the original which was published in 1963 and it is delightful! It tells the story of Jane and her baby blanket. The illustrations are all sketches where the only colour (other than black and white) is the pink blanket. It shares some of the things Jane used to do with the blanket as she grew from being a baby to school age, showing how as she grew bigger the much loved blanket grew smaller. Initially Jane is reluctant to let her old tattered blanket go until a bluebird started to use threads from it to line her nest. This is a sweet book, one that may well end up being as treasured as Jane’s beloved blanket. It could easily be read with children who are a similar age to Jane towards the end of the story - an age when they are beginning to outgrow their own blanket or baby toys. It could help reassure children that this is just part of growing up and not meant to upset them. It is a lovely, if old fashioned, book and one that will stay in the memories of those who hear or read it as a child. Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

Kit Camp is a sancutary fot kits. We don't judge whatever clans you come from and what past you have. This is a place where we simply hang and play and talk. So have a great time. Rules: No grown cats, Clans can't fight us and vice versa, you can leave at anytime but tell us so we can say farwell, and you must have the suffix 'kit' to your name (No doubles plaese) . Map: Result 1 is introduction:(You are here), Res. 2 is bios, 3 is camp, 4 is nursery, 5 is my den and thats about it. Have fun, dont forgrt about bios, and welcome. -Gemkit
