I saw these pegs out side a (hmm what should I call it…) flea market, yesterday and I had to buy them because they looked like a family.
Which reminds me of a wonderful book called All Kinds of Families by Mary Ann Hoberman, illustrated by Marc Boutavant. I think I’ve said before that I love Marc Boutavant’s illustrations and they merrily compliment Mary Ann Hoberman’s poem about all the different types of families there are. A refrain in the book is: “Bottle caps, gingersnaps, buttons, or rings. You can make families from all sorts of things!” It brings out the curator in me.
