|I found a few sources about Garth Williams including his publisher's page and the wiki page- not great for really important stuff, but just fine for what we wanted. I made some fact cards about him.|
|For our personal use, I made some prints of his book illustrations and laminated them.|
|I also made up some questions about him and placed those on a card.|
|On the library shelf I laid out some of the books he illustrated. This is a great place to "strew" some things you want kids to discover!|
|I couldn't resist another peek at our library shelf- which is home to our library books, our Fred collection that isn't being used and the horizontal books at the bottom are helping to press flowers. There are a few others we own on there too.|
We've enjoyed getting to know Garth Williams since April. It'll be time to switch out to another artist. Right now I'm trying to picture where our library shelf will go in our new house (the one we don't have yet though our house is under contract!) and where the pencil tree will call home there. We might have to take a break on the artist tree displays until these items (and us!) find a new place to call home.
