Tuesday is books-and-libraries day at the River Houses. This Tuesday, take a moment from your homeschool schedule to pay a visit to the Rare Book Division of the Library of Congress in Washington, where you can browse a special exhibit of the works of famed children’s book illustrator Randolph Caldecott (1846–1886).
The exhibit’s featured publication is The Complete Collection of Pictures & Songs by Randolph Caldecott, a special retrospective volume published in 1887 just after Caldecott’s death. High-resolution scans are available of all the illustrations — many of which you could easily print out for last-minute Christmas decorations.
What literary discoveries have you made in your local library this week? 😊
