|our cute lil nook...in need a proper rocking chair and some wall art - but those will come later :-)|
We lucked out when we moved into our new apartment last fall - lots of perks like a nice big kitchen, great open layout and second bedroom with a small built in bookcase. I am such a fan of beautiful bookcases. *Sigh*
When I was growing up with had huge bookcases in our living room FULL of childrens books. Literally, hundreds and hundreds of books. Hundreds. My mom is a book fanatic, and cannot resist a beautifully illustrated children's book! We were lucky kiddos to be surrounded by so many lovely imagination sparklers.
The bookcase in our nursery has a few books...mostly from my mom....who started sending us pretty books in October. Yes. October. And she likes to send the "toy" that goes with the book - so there are qutie a few little treasures up on those bookshelves too.
Tommy purchased a couple of the cutest books. He received a gift card to Barnes and Noble for Christmas, and instead of buying any of the bazillion books he's wanted, he bought a couple books for his daughter. He went and read reviews about different new children's books and selected an Olivia book and Charlie Parker Played Be Bop. I thought this was the cutest thing in the whole entire world. He didn't even tell me he did this - so I came home one day and there were two new books in the case. So sweet. He's going to be such a great daddy.
I was huge Madeline fan as a kiddo - I used to read those books to my baby sister over and over. What were your fave children's books??
