Josie Leavitt, Eric Carle, and Picture Book Shelving

Josie Leavitt is a co-owner of The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne, Vermont. On a regular basis, Josie rearranges the picture books from a turntable shelf in the window that will either draw visitors’ attention or leave them wanting more. Right now, of course, Josie continues to focus on picture books that include fall colors and fall topics. Her audience will range from curious children to concerned parents, all of whom are looking for books that catch their eye. That’s the benefit of picture book shelving for a small bookstore in the Northeast. And it’s also the way that media specialists in school libraries around the country are beginning to draw eyes to their collections.

This season, the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is celebrating 10 years of exhibitions, a growing collection, and original illustrations. Founders of the museum believe that picture books are a way to introduce very young children to the world of literature before they can even read a single word. Stimulated by visual representations on the cover of a book, even older children will consider picking it up.
