Hi, everyone! I’ve made something a little bit different today. This Storytime image from Rachelle Anne Miller was the perfect one to color up for a wall hanging to go in a toddler’s room.
The image itself is almost square, so I had to come up with something to fill the space to make it fit in my frame. I chose a quote from a children’s book from 1953 that every Norwegian knows pretty much by heart. The English title is “Claus Climbermouse and the other animals in the Huckybucky forest”. Early on in the book, the fox, the porcupine and the owl all try eating the smaller animals, particularly the mice. The fox is pretty much always hungry because the mice keep getting away. At one point all the animals attend a meeting in the forest, held by the bear, where one of the mice suggests they pass a law that says that all the animals have to be friends, none of them can eat the others, and that the ones that are too lazy to find food themselves, aren’t allowed to steal food from others. The law is passed, even though the owl, porcupine and fox don’t entirely agree.
I was super happy with how it turned out. What do you think? Good for a wall in a toddler’s room?
