Books are magical all on their own, but Holly of Tutus and Turtles found a way to make one story even more magical for her son.

You probably remember the tale of the Crow and the Pitcher in which a thirsty crow drops pebbles into a pitcher to raise the water level enough so he can drink from it? Holly and her son recreated this scenario using marbles, pebbles and an Italian soda bottle. Literature, science and a great memory all rolled into one - fantastic!

Holly has a great blog for you to check out, Tutus and Turtles which she describes as a "frilly-to-functional collection of all things baby and child."

Have you brought a book to life with your child? Share it in the comments or send us photos at nursery(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com.
