Inching Along With the Bookworms...

 Le sigh...don't you just love Madeline?  The perfect blue coats and yellow hats, that big old house covered in vines and twelve little girls in two straight lines?  But I'm getting ahead of myself.  Last time, I promised that there would be a famous french girl, gassed up canines and a brassy swine.  Kudos to Alice - nice guessing!  Here's a wider shot of the Madeline block:

 Next up was our gassed up canines from Go Dog Go! by P.D. Eastman (side note: it didn't make the character cut, but another one of our house's favorites is also a "Beginner" book by Marilyn Sadler about P.J. Funnybunny called "It's Not Easy Being a Bunny."  If you haven't heard of it, check it out!  Older sister loved to shout "Mooooonk!" when P.J. decides to run away and be a moose.  Trust me, it's funny.)

A peek of some Peeps, of course:

And that brassy swine?  It just has to be Olivia by Ian Falconer

Now, everyone knows that Olivia only likes to wear red, so I was a little disappointed when I just couldn't fit Olivia into a block with a red corner.  But I actually think that the orange and green worked better than I anticipated.  I hope she isn't too upset about it.

Only four more blocks to go!!  This is probably the last progress shot that I'll share until the entire top is finished, but it just makes me happy to see it all together. 
Next time with the Bookworms...a block and a book review!
