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 Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats

I can't review books about winter without including Ezra Jack Keats' The Snowy Day. It is the classic snow book. The clean, simplistic illustrations are so pleasing to the eye.
Little Peter discovers the satisfying crunch of snow under his feet, gives a snowball fight a try and creates perfect snow angels...plus, his red snowsuit is about the sweetest little thing I've ever seen. This is an essential to any little bookshelf.
