My sister just sent me a link to this book, because she recognized the cover photo.
Top right--little girl with braids looped up Heidi-style, furiously engaged with her book. Aren't I cute? (My dad's skill with utilizing "sweet light" doesn't hurt.) I don't know how this particular photo escaped his stock agency into some sort of public domain, but I know it's out there--I first saw it on a billboard advertising, appropriately enough, the Oregon Education Association. "Working Wonders in Oregon Schools" was the tagline, and given that I'm both a product of Oregon schools and have been employed in Oregon schools for nearly two decades, I guess I make a pretty good poster child.
Anyways. I just had to share. It's always a little disconcerting, but also kind of fun. Back when stock agencies were how photographers shared non-assignment photos, we'd run into pictures of our family all over the place*, but now that the internet has changed everything, it's pretty rare. I see the book is not new, so I guess that also explains it.
I marked it "to read" on Goodreads, but it actually sounds kind of dry. Let me know if you know otherwise...
*Like, a picture of my mom and our husky on the packaging for an emergency whistle, or a picture of my nephew's first hair cut appearing in a mall in Iowa, where another sister happened to be.
