"Children's Book Illustrators," University of New England

A few favorites from the "Children's Book Illustrators" exhibit at the University of New England.
From Aesop's Fables,

"Dinosaur Stomp" by Scott Nash

Dr. Seuss!

Sadly, the photo of the Eric Carle illustration came out entirely as glare. I have a fondness for his work. The first book I ever took out of the library was The Hungry Caterpillar.

I strongly recommend the exhibit.  It's a great place to introduce your children to art in a gallery setting in a way that is fun, informative and accessible.  Kids books are all about wonder.  It's hard not to like that, and some pretty magical art.
