Last weekend, I went to a baby shower that was at a children's bookstore! Isn't that a great idea? It was a fabulous place, beautifully decorated. In the photo above, just to the right beside the teepee reading area, there is a circular door in the wall and that is the Hobbit reading room!
There is a very large wardrobe and when you open the doors...
You walk past the hanging coats into Narnia! (Also used as their story telling area.)
It did make me wonder if anyone who comes into this book store realizes how many of the authors represented here are from the British Isles.
Haven't I told you of my love for Dr. Seuss? (Theodore Seuss Geisel was a genius in my book.) And not to mention the man who gave us the characters of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy, among others...Charles Schulz! (Strictly speaking, he was a cartoonist but hey, these were made into children's books too, you know!) Both of these men were Americans and in my opinion, should have their own tables represented at this bookstore! Hey, maybe the owners should ask me...you know I would tell them!
Eric Carle is another author that had his own table in the bookstore and he is American! He was one of our son's favorite authors!
So, don't anyone get into a huff that I noticed all these British authors, but being Georgia Girl With An English Heart, you knew that I would and have to point it out to you!
Oh! And it was a beautiful baby shower, by the way!
Well, you know I must have a song for you! Ralph McTell is from Croydon, England and his "Alphabet Zoo" was a favorite of our son's. Holly the Hedgehog!
