As a family, we are in love with books. There are books everywhere, even though I stopped buying books for myself when I received an iPad as a present. I still buy books for the children, as I feel they should learn to read with hardcopy books. Little Mouse always had a book tugged under her arm from the time she started to walk.This is the year that she is finally learning to read in school and she is really excited. When there was a dress up day at school, we had to think of a bookish costume. There is a beautiful book fairy costume that I’ve seen on Pinterest and it was the first thing that sprang to mind.
I have a student that helps me occasionally with babysitting and she was so kind to make the costume. It turned out so well that Little Mouse was on the cover of the school newsletter the following week.
Here is Little Mouse as a book fairy.
If you want to make a Book Page Tutu of your own Lilliedale has an excellent tutorial with photos that you can follow. I would love to see photos if you decide to make one.
