Kid Konnection: My Miniature Library

Every Saturday, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekend feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you a delightful set of miniature books that makes the ideal holiday gift!

Summary: My Miniature Library is a kit to make a complete collection of tiny books that you can really read! With stories ranging from illustrated fairytales to well-loved nonsense rhymes and books of butterflies, birds and flowers, plus blank books for you to complete yourself, you'll have everything you need to make a little library of beautifully illustrated books. The books are simple to make – just cut, fold, and glue. The kit comes with a miniature bookshelf to press out and make, and easy-to-follow, fully illustrated instructions. Plus the box transforms into a beautiful library scene! -- Laurence King

I actually have never seen anything like MY MINIATURE LIBRARY: 30 TINY BOOKS TO MAKE, READ, AND TREASURE by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini. This boxed set is mined at kids seven years old and up; however, I think any book lover will appreciate this as a gift during the upcoming holiday season. This gift set looks like a large book, but it contains 20 teeny tiny books in a box that you can assemble to look like a home library. There is even a punch-out bookcase you can assemble to hold the tiny books! It's beyond adorable! MY MINIATURE LIBRARY has a fantastic collection of abbreviated versions of fairy tales, classics, natural history volumes, and even ten blank books that are begging for your own budding author's prose. The tiny books include BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, CINDERELLA, SLEEPING BEAUTY, THE FROG PRINCE, and more. I should probably mention that each book does require some assembly using cutting, folding, and gluing skills, so little crafters will enjoy this gift as well.
I am not exactly sure I'm doing a good job of explaining just how adorable this gift box is. I think this video does a much better job than anything I can write... so enjoy! Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this gift set.

If you'd like to participate in Kid Konnection and share a post about anything related to children's books (picture, middle grade, or young adult) from the past week, please leave a comment as well as a link below with your name/blog name and the title of the book!
