Children's books have always delighted and excited me. I have many fond memories of curling up with a book while my Mom read to us. I hope this is something my children will fondly cherish as they get older. I have a collection of children's books that is consuming my house. We have cubbies here, shelves there, bookcases throughout....I try to "pair it down" every once in a while, but it never lasts long. I always find a new one that I adore add to our collection. We have a seasonal book shelf in Buga's room - picture shelves where the books are placed cover out so she can choose whichever one appeals to her most - a front facing library. I love seeing the illustrations and I love incorporating the seasonal theme into our everyday lives. Below are some of our favorites this Summer....and I will later post some art projects to go along with a couple of them.
