Some pig! December 7, 2006

Posted by sneaks in display topics, J is for Juvenile, winter.


The new Charlotte’s Web movie opens December 15th. With actors such as Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey, Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000), Steve Buscemi, and Robert Redford voicing the characters, it is expected to hit big.

A display of children’s books about farmyard animals seems like an obvious tie-in, but how about pulling your best-looking copies of classic children’s animal books into a display of oldies but goodies?

Some ideas:

  • A Cricket in Times Square by George Selden
  • Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
  • Are You My Mother? by P.D. Eastman
  • The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
  • Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard Atwater
  • Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag
  • Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H. by Robert C. O’Brien
  • Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
  • the books of Dick King-Smith, Margaret Wise Brown, Virginia Lee Burton, and the other two children’s books by E.B. White (Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan)

PS: Save Peter Rabbit and his friends for when the Beatrix Potter movie comes out January 21!
