Books and paintings for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea from Fallen Gods. Find them at the Tattered Page Library.
An old friend of mine told me a story real life story yesterday. The local library was having its book drive. A small child came up to her in the children's book area that she was overseeing. "I am six and I can read you know!" he announced proudly. I can see that scene in my mind's eye and it makes me smile.
When I was a bit older than that there was a summer reading program at my library. Each child in the Bookworm Club had a drawing of a segmented worm with a hat. They lined the walls of the kid's section. Each time you read a book -- and reported of course, a segment was filled in. The goal was to get your worm from black and white to red and green by the end of the summer. I can still see that worm, or at least a memory of the reality.
The worms have been modernized of course and come with various looks. This is the closest to my memory.
