Eight or nine years ago, before my wife and I were even married, we came across this wonderful series of wall cards at a gardening-themed gift shop in Brattleboro, VT. We both immediately knew they would be perfect for a kid's room one day. Mind you, we had no kid, no room, and no house yet, but this artwork was so perfect, we purchased the cards on the spot and tucked them away for when the time was right. Almost a decade later they finally saw the light of day, and they were worth the wait.
My daughter Olive's nursery is heavy on warm wood with its pine walls, planked ceiling, exposed beams and spruce floor. A large accent wall of calming green provides a bit of relief from all of that woody goodness. The Eeboo Counting Birds Wall Cards fit perfectly into the neutral color scheme and are a great link between her nature-themed nursery and the woods outside her window.
I especially appreciate the fact that the birds depicted are stylized but accurate representations of birds she can see all summer long, such as Phoebes, Goldfinches and Chickadees. Ten 8" x 10" cards provide countless display options and are sturdy enough to be handled regularly as a teaching tool. But once you see them, you will find it hard to resist putting them out of the reach of grubby fingers.
You can find Eeboo's Counting Birds cards easily online including at Amazon or buy them directly from Eeboo.
