Reading to Kalia is one of my favorite activities and so I go about collecting books I want her to read some day and building her library. I save my findings on Pinterest (of course)
I stumbled upon these beautiful classics redone with embroidery for the covers called Penguin Threads. I love them and want every one for her library- I do not buy books anymore, I read them on my iPad, so it is exciting to slowly build a collection again.
I miss books and these stunning artistic covers on some of my favorite classics pieces of literature will be a wonderful way to get Kalia's Library going!
Black Beauty by Anne Sewell, Emma by Jane Austen and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (a favorite of my childhood!) were all completed by the artist Jillian Tamaki.
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum were done by Rachell Sumpter
I read all the Oz stories as a child and cannot wait to return to that world again with my little girl.
What books do you recommend? Let me know, I want a HUGE library for Kalia (as in Beast's gift to Belle in Beauty and the Beast Huge :)
