OnSugar Blog Miss Poppins' Purse Finds Inspiration in Dick and Jane Books

This Is Jane. She Wears Cute Clothes.

We're suckers for literary references, particularly when it involves iconic childrens' books. Case in point: this adorable post from OnSugar blogger Miss Poppins' Purse!


The "Dick and Jane" books of the 1950s will always hold a spot in my heart, as well as a place on my bookshelf. The one-sentence adventures of these two children helped American children learn to read such useful sentences as "They love each other," and "See the bunny!" Okay, so perhaps I don't integrate these sentences into my everyday dialogue, but wouldn't life be easier if we all spoke in this direct, matter-of-fact way? Maybe only five-year-olds get that privilege. Although I do not often employ Jane's dialogue, I see her style in my wardrobe. Her gingham dresses, peter-pan collared dresses and shirts, as well as her adorable Mary Jane shoes, are essential for every girl, no matter the age!
