Bookmarks of Johnson County...

Book Marks of Johnson County is "a celebration of reading, writing and book art in Johnson County Iowa.  To go along with my "get outside" with the kids goal this summer we spent the morning looking at over 20 different books and walking around Iowa city, driving to Coralville and North Liberty for the last couple.  The kids had fun looking at the inside and outside of the books.  They spent the most time at the Chalkboard book which you can wipe off and write on continuously.  Below are the books and the names of each on the trip. If in Iowa City, Coralville or North Liberty this summer try and get a look at these.  Some of the art work is amazing.  There were two downtown Iowa city that weren't out yet and we didn't get to the one on 12th Ave in Coralville.  There is also a few on the east side of Iowa city I didn't drive too and one at the Eastern Iowa Airport.  We will leave those for another day.

Desire Defies Reason


Once upon a Time
There are many stories I could tell you about what the kids said about all of these, but not enough time in the day.  It was a great day of fun and adventure.  We didn't see them all, but are looking forward to finishing the trek by October when the books are taken down.  No idea how much they cost, but "wow" wouldn't be cool to have one of these in your garden
