Look Like A Book: A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Here is the second in a fun new blog series starring everyone’s favorite children’s book characters.

Who wouldn’t want to steal radishes while donning their best blue coat like Peter Rabbit? Or wear a straw hat while ‘poo-poo-ing’ at tigers like Madeline? Each week I will be posting how to get those classic bookish looks for your little ones. I hope to provide some inspiration for birthdays, World Book Day, and Halloween.

This week I loved taking a step into the world of kind-hearted Amos McGee. So slip on some bunny slippers, button up your best striped pajamas, and have a game of chess (or cards) with elephant, penguin, owl, rhino and tortoise.

Below are the links to the exact props but please use what you have already at home, search your nearest thrift store, or borrow from a friend for a more Earth and budget-friendly option.
