Nursery Decor, Part 2

The National Education Association offers sobering statistics 
on the success of children who are read to vs. those who are 
not.  What better place to encourage a love of reading than in 
the nursery?

We all know that the first rule of reading is Start With The
Basics - the alphabet.  An arrangement of different shaped
letters not only makes a charming wall treatment, it also
introduces an array of colors, shapes and textures.

TIP:  If expectant parents choose to go with an alphabet-themed nursery, a great gift
        idea for their baby shower is to assign a letter to each attendee.

A fun way to introduce the alphabet is through accessories.

Children love to see their name in BIG letters:

     Framed pages from a vintage book are colorful and
     inexpensive.  Just about any theme for a nursery can
     can be found in the pages of a book.

Restoring a bookcase is an easy Before and After projects and is usually quite
inexpensive.  Check out the dramatic results of a little sanding and painting:

Do you remember reading Little Golden Books as a child?
The nursery, below, was designed around Corky, a story
about a boy and his dog.

The parents chose muted colors and simply framed
pages from the book.  Clever and inexpensive!

So handy - a book rack beside the rocker.

When you instill a love of reading
in a child you give them a gift for
a lifetime.

Consider making books an important
part of their nursery.
