I know exactly what book I would use … Tikki Tikki Tembo by Arlene Mosel and illustrated by Blair Lent.
I choose that book because when I was a little girl, I would visit my very favorite great aunt who always told me a version of the story about a little Indian boy with a very, very long name who fell into a river.
After receiving a copy of Tikki Tikki Tembo, it became my favorite book with a wonderful memory attached.

Oh, love apartmenttherapy, love the room and what a great idea!

Linda, yes, that would be good! I haven't decided yet, but definitely would like to do this.

Michelle, I want to hire all those Apartment Therapy people with their great ideas to remake our house. Or maybe you should just come visit for the weekend! You always have great ideas, too. So far NT has vetoed my idea of making the kitchen over with an all-chicken theme.

I really like this idea. But, it would be much, much too hard for me to choose!

Your timing is perfect I read this classic book to 126 kindergarten children in my Australian Primary School library just last week. I found a cute youtube of it too using the original book and funny voices for the monkeys. I always tell the children about the colours and the printing processes and why there is no blue.

I have pictures from I Am Absolutely Too Small for School by Lauren Child in my bedroom, and someday when I take down the Wallpaper of Horror and Mirrored Wall of Doom in my upstairs hall, I am going to hang up pictures there from Hondo and Fabian by Peter McCarty.

Momo, it's fun, isn't it!

Adrienne, great ideas! I am having trouble deciding, but maybe Jan Brett's Owl & the Pussycat to start.

Ohh, I love this idea. I've had the thought cross my mind, and once had decided on Mr. McGee's Camping Spree, but then I love so many books, it would be hard to decide. Just in case you might be interested, I am hosting a giveaway right now for an illustration from a children's book, signed by the illustrator, Joel Siebel. Also, the book is a giveaway as well and will be signed by the author, Ryan Jacobson. The book is Nature Squad, Bluebird Finds a Home. Come check it out if you get a chance! Thanks for the great idea!

I love how the illustrations are really the centerpiece of the room. Who says picture books aren't for adults? I've had so many adults tell me their favorite picture book when they find out I work at a library. The life of a book lives on long after you read it.
