Incorporating books in seasonal decor
I haven't pulled out the autumn/Halloween decorations yet, but I'm thinking very hard about it. One simple and fun element I always like to include in my seasonal decor is picture books. We choose a book with a seasonal or holiday theme. It must have great illustrations and a good story. I display it on a table or shelf in a little vignette along with our other seasonal decor. Of course we pull it down from said display and read it a dozen times. We pack the book up in the same box with the decor at the end of the season. It makes for a fun discovery the next year.
For Fall, we display Pumpkin Soup. It is the sweetest little story about friendship and teamwork and soup. The illustrations are as delicious as I imagine the pumpkin soup to be. You can flip through a few of the pages here. I picked it up at Barnes & Noble, but it is available on amazon.com (for $6.95) and probably a dozen other places.
Do you have a favorite fall or Halloween book?
