Today I’m inspired by…Christmas books. We went through our stash of holiday books and have been reading one each night before Christmas. I found a cute idea for a Book Advent Calendar on Babyccino. It’s so fun to read some classics like “The Night Before Christmas” and some new versions like “Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear.” The following books aren’t necessarily on our list (some I’ve never even read- so I’m not vouching for content!) but ones I found that had interesting book covers or art. If you would like more info or a larger picture of the book, click on the links below the pictures. Enjoy!
Christmas in the Manger (I LOVE Felicia Bond’s artwork!)
Dream Snow (I LOVE Eric Carle’s stuff, too!)
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Today I’m inspired by…Charley Harper. He was an amazing artist/illustrator who specialized in wildlife prints. Though you may not know his name, you will probably recognize his art. Todd Oldham (the designer) wrote a book about Charley Harper’s life and art called Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life. Unfortunately I don’t have $135 to drop on that coffee table book, but maybe this memory game, children’s book , or coloring book would be more in my price range. Here are some more pieces from Charley’s collection:
