I'm sure you all know by now about my guilty pleasure of Where the Wild Things Are and everything to do with it, so I was very excited when I stumbled across these amazing book covers based on beloved children's books:
We often say "don't judge a book by it's cover", but be honest with me, how many of you truly adhere to that advice when it comes to the literal reading of a book? Certainly not me, I'm so in love with the illustrated covers of books, especially those of children's books. I'm quite sure you'll agree, then, that these are very special prints.
They'd make very sweet pictures for a nursery wall, children's bedroom, particularly when hung above your child's bookcase. I remember once looking after a little girl named Sophie who had a bookcase that towered above her bed. On it was every single children's book you could possibly even dream of. I used to spend hours pouring over them with her sitting in my lap, helping her learn to read. One of my happiest memories is of her reading me Green Eggs and Ham (a personal favourite of ours) after I'd been away from her for a little while, leaving her to learn to read fluently and with the most beautiful expression.
Which of these prints do you like best? Can you spot the Swedish book amongst the titles?
