Isn't this antique school desk charming??? It's the perfect place for my daughter and me to display some of our fun vintage children's books...
...and finds, like this "Daniel Tiger" hand puppet from the '60's (remember him from Mister Rogers?)...and these cute Ex Libris labels.
Say "good-bye" to school for the summer, but not to books!
Have you come up with any good summer reading strategies for your kids? It's helpful if you can use resources like Jim Trelease's Read Aloud Handbook and William Kilpatrick's Books That Build Character to plan fun, engaging book lists for your kids to choose from.
