My children have been a bit frightened of the unpredictable and very fierce storms that we have been having in Brisbane over the last week. So, to take their mind of the thunder during one of these storms, we decided to rearrange the bookcase in the room my three daughters share. I've seen the colour coordinated look on Flickr and in blogs and always thought it was maybe a bit obsessive, but I love the way it has turned out! It has really brightened up the whole room. My 4 year old especially loves it and she can put the books away by herself much more easily than when I tried to group books by author or type. The children had an absolute ball doing this although they weren't very happy with those publishers that had printed more than one colour on the spine of these picture books. I feel inspired to tackle the other bookshelves in the house now - a much more satisfying job than the ironing!
