How exciting - I just got this book from my daughters 1st grade teacher, she knows I like to embroider kids books and such and sent it home with her!!

Nice ties!

The graphics from the book are simply begging to be embroidered. Picking which one first would be challenge.

Fantastic!

I agree with Mum in Bloom; those totally need to be framed. I'd be willing to bet that there's an entire market for the original publishers to make these types of things available as prints. I know I'd buy.
