Bookends for the Nursery or Kids’ Rooms

I still have the books from my childhood. They’re stacked together and taking up an entire bookshelf.

I can’t imagine ever giving them away. Just a quick glance up from my computer at the shelf and I’m comforted with memories: All the times my abuela read with me, making sure I would be able to read and write in Spanish; how happy I felt to be reading the books my brother had read years before, now passed down to me; the picture books that I was obsessed with, spending hours creating my own stories for the images. There was something exhilarating every time I slid a book out from between the bookends–which were also a part of my book world and the stories I created. These are memories my bookish heart hopes everyone has or will one day have. So I’ve rounded up some kids’ room and nursery bookends–*cough*for adults too*cough*–because they are the perfect book accessory. (Sorry bookmarks, you’re loved too.)
