Perfect Prints for a Petites Book Nook

In thinking about updating my girls book nook, I have been contemplating what type of art to put onto the walls.  I am so excited about some of the amazing things I have found.

Etsy is such a perfect place to find incredibly lovely prints at reasonable prices.  What I love most is that you can find amazing art from illustrators of some of our favorite books.

The Fox and the Tea Cup has amazing prints that depict strong-willed girls and adorable animals reading.  I love her designs and have written about her lovely book plates before.

Illustrator Love: Kit Chase

The petites and I picked up a bunch of books at the library and oh my goodness do I have a super cute book to share with you today. Oliver’s Tree by Kit Chase (G.P. Putnam’s Son Books for Young Readers, 2014) this sweet book was published in March and is so cute, you need to get your hands on it.  I am sure you will fall head over heals for the illustrations and message, just like we did.

This book is just the book I needed to read with my girls.  Sometimes in kindergarten playing with friends can be a challenge, and this book highlights teamwork, friends finding solutions so everyone can play and be included and what it means to be friends.

To my delight, Kit Chase has an Etsy shop: Trafalgar’s Square that is simply adorable.  I am in love and thinking that when I makeover the petites book nook this shop will be my first stop.  I love these prints and the love of literacy that they showcase.
