PostSubject: April 2nd - International Children's Book Day   April 2nd 2012, 4:39 pm

Today is International Children's Book Day! We are so fortunate to be able to read to our children or grandchildren and we have a day dedicated to this! I read to my sons every night from when they were just born until they were about 12. It has been a while since then and I must admit that this is the one thing I really miss about the boys being younger.

So... I want to see a layout with children's book. It could be your children or grandchildren reading, a niece, or just a favourite book from your childhood! Here is one I did of Stuart's Mr. Men Library that he loved (and still has). Whatever I was reading to him, we HAD to end with a Mr. Men book! LOL!!



You have until April 29th at midnight to get this challenge done and uploaded to here! Happy Reading!!

This is a great idea! I used to read to the kids all the time.. until they were almost 18!! Like you said, Helen, it's one of the things I miss most about my kids being smaller. Now I'm reading to my grandkids... Very Happy

Love that linear layout! Th elittle Mr. Tickle is too cute. Smile

I am not sure how many Mr Men and Little Miss books there are Kerri, but in the set Stuart got YEARS ago there are 42 and they are all well used! We bought them when we lived in the UK. Very popular there too!!

And no Kerri..... they are not DPB.... you should know better! LOL!!!
