Vlog: A Bookshelf Tour of Eleanor's Room

I filmed a video of Eleanor's bookshelves! First I filmed it with myself in it, but it was uber awkward. So, I refilmed it, shooting only the bookshelves. You still have to hear my awkward, pregnant, heavy breathing... but trust me, it's way better.

It was fun to show off my little book makeover though - I love her bookshelves now! That's mostly why I filmed this, because I thought some of you might want to try this with your kid books.

Last but not least, here's a list of the books and authors I mention in the video. Some of them I've blogged about before - so I linked to earlier reviews. But obviously, I've been spacing some authors - how have I never blogged about the Chronicles of Narnia or the Jellybeans?!

How do YOU organize kids' books?

P.S. I forgot to say this: but the other 2/3 of our picture books are now in boxes on Eleanor's closet shelf, and I rotate them.
