Today’s Christmas-themed illustration is by Earl Goodenow. This charming scene of children singing was published in the December 1956 edition of Women’s Day magazine. It accompanied a story titled “By the Chimney with Care” by Virginia B Feine.
The short story by Virginia B Feine is available for download at the bottom of this post.
After googling Earle B Goodenow, I was thrilled to find a great deal of information about this talented man and his artistic Japanese American family. He was best known as an author and illustrator of children’s books. Some of his books have been republished and can be purchased new on Amazon.
