At Home


I’m always sad when the book cover of a favorite children’s book gets torn or crumpled, as it inevitably does with a well-loved book. So I’ve started saving our favorite covers — removing them completely before they have a chance to be damaged — and hanging them on the wall. Originally I did this by literally just cutting out the front of the covers and sticking them on the wall with double-sided tape. But I have since upgraded to using actual frames.

    Ha, we are at opposite ens of the spectrum. I find those covers highly annoying (to keep on and keep track of) so the first thing I do when we get a new book is toss them into the trash (well, recycle!).
