I am finishing our attic to make a play-room for my two daughters (ages 6 and 7), and I love the idea of writing a phrase or quote on the wall, possibly from a children’s book. I have some favorites, but I am having some difficulty finding exactly what I want and need some ideas. I could think of no better source for ideas that you and/or your readers. Would it be possible to pass along my question? Thanks much — Laurie

I love this idea, Laurie. Now I want to dig into my children’s library and find the perfect one. It’s probably too lengthy, but I love the comfort at the end of Where the Wild Things Are:

Max stepped into his private boat and waved good-bye
and sailed back over a year

and in and out of weeks

and through a day
and into the night of his very own room

where he found his supper waiting for him

and it was still hot.

Dear Readers, if you could put up a quote or phrase in your playroom, what would it be?
