Nursery Theme - Infant ABC

A Nursery With Literacy Theme

When people plan their first baby’s nursery, they usually think about it being cute. While “cute” was important to us as well, we also talked about how we want to foster love of literacy from very early on. This is why we bought a fabric with ABC characters when we planned her nursery, and my husband, a crafty half of our family, sewed pillow cases and curtains out of it. I remember holding Smarty on my lap when she was a very young baby and pointing her letters on her pillow. It's hard to tell if being surrounded by letters early made any difference, but we definitely enjoyed having this theme in her room, especially in combination with Winnie-the-Pooh.
