Kinder Glück


When I was in Germany I found this beautiful old book in my bedroom called

Kinderglück – Children’s happiness


it is from 1919, almost 100 years old.


It shows 87 pictures beautifully drawn by artists

reflecting children’s happiness.

no photoshop involved…..

My two favourites are:


This one is called Idyll


this one is called “promising”

Here a little collection of others:

I will treasure this little book.

Children then enjoyed more nature and their surroundings.

Wishing you a love filled and happy day !

  1. Such sweet illustrations!! I love the ‘promising,’ it was pure unadulterated drawing! I wish you complete happiness today, and all your days my friend!
    Blessings. 🙂

  3. I love nostalgia!! What a great find! These illustrations remind me of my Hummel figurines and capture the innocence of childhood so perfectly! I have several old children’s books from Germany from when I was a little girl. Now I’m a big girl and i still love my teddy bears and storybooks!

    Have a happy day!!

  4. A treasure indeed!! Parents were not afraid to let their children get dirty back then. Thank you for sharing. If I translated correctly, was this book your grandmothers? And a question, is Oma or Omi like a nickname for Grandmother much like Nanna or Gram would be for Americans?

  5. These are lovely, Ute 🙂
    Saw your problems with photos on the next post? I can’t help, sorry. So far mine have been the same as before but I’m crossing my fingers

  6. Granny and I love these kind of books. The pictures are priceless and when I (Granny 😉 was still living in Germany I remember I had to read the old German letters. I loved it and still do 🙂 Pawkisses for a sunny Sunday 🙂

Love to hear from you......
