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.

The Gingerbread Man by Jim Aytesworth


The Gingerbread Man illustrated by Barbara McClintock is so well told and illustrated. You should have seen the grins on the piggies' faces as I told them the story for the first time. They adored it.

This is the classic story/rhyme that has been told for generations put together with beautiful drawings. I'm a Barbara McClintock lover (she illustrated another of our favorite books) and this book does not disappoint.

I can tell this will be one the kids ask for again and again.
