When Picture Books Fall Apart

Yesterday one of our picture books fell apart.  We’ve read George Shrinks by William Joyce (Author’s website) so many times that it just couldn’t take it anymore.  I sat there with the fallen book in my hands and thought what a waste to lose this book — the images are so beautiful.  This inspired me to put some of the pages around the house.

Brush Your Teeth

From George Shrinks by William Joyce

Water the Plants

From George Shrinks by William Joyce









I’m rather happy with how it turned out.  It’s such a little thing, but it adds a new richness to the room.  These prints make excellent and beautiful reminders to: Clean Your Room, Brush Your Teeth, Make Your Bed, and Water the Plants (among others).

It is a simple way of improving the beauty and literacy environment of our home and saving a wonderful picture book simultaneously.
