Reminder from The Library (and a hint about Challenge 10)

According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents.

Here's a little reminder from The Library - but your books aren't overdue and there'll certainly be no fines! 

It's just a reminder to join in the current challenge - 'Where the Wild Things Are'  - which runs till June 30th . 

Challenge 8 starts on Sunday June 24th and is a time-travel romance with a floral title.

Challenge 9 - Where the Wild Things Are

According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents.

Quiet Please Crafters! You’re in The Library now.

The story
Challenge 9 is Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak which is a children's picture book first published in 1963. It's got a naughty child in a wolf costume, it's got a boat and an island and it's got monsters!

Here's how The Librarian interpreted this challenge:

Please do check the schedule in the side-bar. Challenge 8 (Breakfast at Tiffany's  )  will remain open for another week and I'll be back on June 23rd  with my 'Librarian's Choice' - projects which caught my eye. 

I hope you will join The Library.

Librarian's Choice - Challenge 7 - Brideshead Revisited


What wonderful creations were entered into this challenge! They were all beautiful but I've decided to highlight two here:

Pia made a pretty, romantic card with a 'bride's head' (and body!) and a vintage car. (There's also a chapel in the background and there is one in the story too.) 

Celebrate Together | by karen h @ carefree creations
Karen H almost recreated the cover with her colours, car, banner and sentiment.

I hope you will copy the badge (above) to your blogs.

The current challenge - Breakfast at Tiffany's - is still open for another week and also I'll be back tomorrow with challenge 9- a picture book suitable for a wild child.

Reminder from The Library (and a hint about Challenge 9)

“Never love a wild thing...If you let yourself love a wild thing, you'll end up looking at the sky.”

Here's a little reminder from The Library - but your books aren't overdue and there'll certainly be no fines! 

It's just a reminder to join in the current challenge - 'Breakfast at Tiffany's '  - which runs till June 16th. 

(I know some of you have got Audrey Hepburn stamps stashed away, so no excuse not to ink them up for this challenge, I think.) 

Challenge 9 starts on Sunday 10th June and is a children's picture book that's the perfect read for a wild child.
