SUN BONNET sweetheart

To those familiar with my book Tattered and Lost: Childhood this little girl may seem familiar. Yes, it's the same little girl in a sun bonnet that appears on the cover, but a little younger. I have to wonder for how many years did she wear this bonnet?

I have other images of little girls in this style of bonnet. I wonder if there is an historical significance to its popularity. They really do look like sun rays, but I'm guessing they weren't followers of the Sun God Ra of Egypt. Then again, you just never know.
