It’s already October, which means Halloween is just around the corner! Here is a little costume inspiration for your desktop or phone to get your wheels turning. As you’re probably aware, I dressed up as a hotdog a few months ago, as any normal person would do (gah!) and that sparked the inspiration for these adorable illustrations by Monica. I’m dying over this. That lemon get-up is calling my name!
How’s the reading going? Are you following along with our Lars Book Club Instagram posts? I get it – there’s ALOT of info in Michael Rosen’s Alphabetical. But I hope the facts and history haven’t made your eyes glaze over. If so, just skip to the next chapter! 🙂 There’s sure to be a topic to interest you. Have you picked a favorite chapter (or letter) yet? How Rosen researched each of the letters and themes associated with them is mind-boggling to think about. I’ve truly enjoyed learning about where the language I speak and alphabet I use every day comes from. We take so much for granted! Below are some questions to think about, plus a couple further reading suggestions.
This month we have partnered with letter artist, Jill De Haan, to create a beautiful quote from the book: “Every letter tells a story.” It’s available as a free printable as well as a bookmark in three different colors. Downloads below! Read on →
We collaborated with one of my favorite illustrators, Samantha Hahn, on some summer art prints that you can print off and hang up. She used her beautiful watercolor technique to create some fun summer sayings like “Sun worshipper”, “summer vacay”, and “picnic lunch” along with some gorgeous summer ladies and I added some flowers on top. Anna Killian captured the art images and now they are available for you! See the full collection below!
