I am a self-proclaimed book fiend. Children's literature holds a special place in my heart - I think it is because my mother is an avid book lover herself and taught me from very early on to love classic, well-written children's literature.
Beautiful, enriching illustrations are just a part of the draw of a wonderful children's story, and so most of the books we review here will have gorgeous drawings.
You will not find any lackluster books on this blog. No vulgar Dora, Spongebob or Disney.
We believe in books that beautify the experience of growing up and learning.

On Noah's Ark Written and Illustrated by Jan Brett

You'll probably be seeing a lot of Jan Brett featured on this blog. Virtually all her books are among our favorites. With just cause. Take a look at this illustration:

Jan Brett is a master at her art. Such sweet stories and breathtaking pages.

The classic Bible story of Noah and his ark in charming illustrations. The details found on every ounce of every page make this is a story book worth snuggling up with again and again.

Jan Brett's website can be found here. She generously provides tons of free downloads which is really rare in an artist.
