Another reason to go to the library

We were in Manhattan last weekend and had the great pleasure to see the show currently at the New York Public Library titled: "The ABC of It: Why Children's Books Matter". In an exquisitely designed exhibit, you walk through the history of literature for children and learn how the philosophy of how we educate children has changed through time. 

Some of the things I loved seeing: the original drawings from Alice in Wonderland; A. A. Milne's son's stuffed animals that were the inspiration for the characters of Winnie the Pooh; and this delightful piece from Little Toot.
