The Little Red Caboose
I think it would be fun to frame a few of these for a vintage vibe in a nursery. I remember my Mom saying that Golden Books used to be a quarter or something like that, and now they're up to about $3.00. It's still a fairly inexpensive way to personalize your nursery or playroom. Pick a few of your favorites as a child and you've got quick and easy artwork.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
You can find TVHC bedding and accessories at Pottery Barn Kids. I don't know that I'd go so literal in a child's room, but the artwork still has so many fun colors to play around with. Eric Carle is a favorite in our house and I'm always so impressed by the way he layers to create texture in his illustrations.
The Very Quiet Cricket
I love this bumblebee and flower. This book is on Sheila's favorite list right now.
I can't get enough Jamberry. I love the colors and the cute illustrations.
