A little help?

Posted on

Another summer project I would love to do is a “where to?” sign, like this one over at The Adventures of Library Girl.  

So far, the places I have are: 

  • Narnia
  • Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
  • Camp Half-Blood
  • Droon
  • Deltora
  • Spiderwick Estate
  • Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory
  • The Emerald City
  • Wonderland
  • Neverland
  • 100 Acre Wood
  • Whoville
  • Where the Wild Things Are

Being in an elementary school, I would love to add a few more picture book lands or places. Any ideas?

    How about”The Black Lagoon” or “Miss Nelson’s Room”? I know it’s not a picture book, but maybe “Wayside School”? I think this is a great idea, I might try it myself this summer!

    You could add the big woods & plum creek for the Little House books, but again they are not picture book places! I am going to search the shelves tomorrow to see what I can come up with!! Great idea!! Thank you for sharing all your wonderful ideas & projects!!

    What about Elwood City from Marc Brown’s Arthur books?

    Love this idea! Not sure if these would work for you, but how about “Skippyjon’s Closet” and “Elephant and Piggie’s Place”?

    AWESOME idea! I saw the middle school one, too, and was inspired… but never gave wings to the project. Here are a couple others that come to mind:

    Castle Dor (Tale of Despereaux)
    Bloors Academy (Charlie Bone)
    Nomansen Island (Mysterious Benedict Society)
    Berkshire Mountains (The Penderwicks)
    Briny Beach (A Series of Unfortunate Events – Book 1: The Bad Beginning)
    Alagaesia (Eragon)
    Decakwoo Drive (Mercy Watson series)
    Walnut Knolls Elementary (Allie Finkle)
    Santa Martina (Sammy Keyes)

    Feel free to use what suits your library!

    Great idea! I loved hers too. A lot of great suggestions already but here are a couple more.

    Sunset Towers (Westing Game)
    Brooklyn House (Kane Chronicles)
    Camp Jupiter (Heroes of Olympus)
