Animals!!!!!

I haven't posted for ages because I have been making these guys!!! Meet the animals for the Milk + Bookies story time event this weekend at the Skirball Center. Milk + Bookies is a wonderful children's literacy non profit operating out of LA. Check out their website for a the details! These woodland creatures were made from over 1700 dictionary pages reclaimed from the Recycling Center.


Here are the squirrels in their box which will make it's way to LA Saturday...

The alligator can hold a book or sign in it's jaw (or even a 7 year old's head).



3 owls tower above....
The animals who have been living here the past week left today (despite tears from little ones), on a journey to the Skirball Center. Wish them luck!
