Little Librarian: Just in Time for Christmas Giving
Link to October 15 Wisconsin State Journal article, "A real toy story: Madison mom, daughter’s library kit a finalist in contest".,
Excerpt: A Madison mother and daughter’s toy project will be featured in Disney’s FamilyFun magazine next month after being named a finalist in the magazine’s Toy of the Year contest.
Little Librarian, created by Kristine and Amanda Miller, is a kit that helps children to create a library out of their own books. The kits include library cards, book cards, pockets that go inside the books like in pre-computer days, a reading journal, bookmarks and even overdue slips.
“The librarian at my daughter’s grade school shared some supplies, and I made it into a Christmas gift because she played librarian at home all the time,” Kristine Miller said.
