Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made posted a fun article about how to add character to your bookshelves.  I love this wagon idea--especially in a little boy's room! 

How do you add character to your bookshelves?

Other than stuff it full and overflowing of books?

I am so excited to have found your blog!! I create storybook inspired art and have a HUGE thing for children's books. I am hosting an upcoming baby shower with a storybook theme.
So nice to "meet" you! Looking forward to keeping up with your fun posts.
Kindest wishes,

I could see this in a nice office too for someone who has a playful spirit. I have a tiny wooden wagon that was perfect for my business cards.

I love that!

That is an adorable idea! I haven't added anything to my bookshelves- hardly can fit all of my books. I like having the actual stuffed characters around and thought of having a character room when my girls were small- frankin, arthur, the mouse and the cookie, etc. and I wanted to display the books on shelves with the characters.

That is a great picture! There is a piggy bank on my son's book shelf. It was hand made by my father when I was little. It looks like it is constructed a lot like that whale you have on your bookshelf (the one that is sitting next to the whale + fox book in your other post) but it is a piggy, not a whale.
Anyway, I really like this blog. I L-U-U-U-V children's books!!!
And, guess what??? You won our give-away!!! I posted about it today. I'll send you an email about it later.

Love the Radio Flyer! We have a little one and I think it will now become something to give my boy's bookshelf some character! :-)

I do have a small Radio Flyer wagon, but the problem is my kids won't let it stay on the shelf long enough for display. I seem to have better luck with vintage items I've found, like a small chalkboard, abacus, etc. that I use to break up the monotony of books.
