Bookplates for Bookworms

felixdoolittle.jpgLaurel has long been a bookworm, and her well-loved (read: grubby) baby and toddler books thus are far from keepsake quality. It’s only now, as she’s grown into a pre-K’er who takes pride in – and care of - her belongings, that I’ve looked at some of her books and toys in a preservative light. And I subsequently adore Newton-based Felix Doolittle’s gorgeous bookplates. These elegant yet playful watercolor motif plates (shown motif; Favorite Things) can be ordered blank or personalized and are a lovely way to commemorate your child’s favorite books, or – as a friend pointed out to me - offer a simple way for an older child to mark ownership of a few items when a sibling comes along.
