Reading is Fundamental

Methane Studios "Don Quixote"

Everyone wants a smart kid... so why not give yours a leg up by surrounding them by books from the get-go? And while you're at it, why not upgrade your kids room decor by filling the walls with posters inspired by classic novels? Sophisticated child's room is what we immediately thought when we first saw these prints from Gallery 1988's show, Required Reading. They're graphic enough to keep your toddler engaged, and grown up enough that they won't embarrass your tweens. But by that point you'll  have given up trying to redo your child's bedroom as you soon realize that decorating skills are no match for the powers of Robert Pattinson.

Take heart though... it's still your house for the time being so hang whatever you want and create the beyond cool room you always dreamed of. And if anyone says that Bobby's too young to be reading The Stranger, just tell them your prepping him early for the absurd, existential drama known as life.
