As an avid children's book reader (must be the educator in me), I have quite a few books by my favorite children's authors. One that I have enjoyed since childhood, is Shirley Hughes, an English author and illustrator. This book is new to me, but after one read through, I know that it will become one of our prized belongings. The pictures are intricate and playful and the colors are beautifully vivid! Here is a summary from the back of the book:
"Baby blues and navy blue, rosy apples and dark cherries, grasshoppers and greenflies, a harvest moon... The world is full of dazzling colours as a lively toddler and her baby brother discover!"
After inspecting every page of this book, I was thrilled to discover that there are several other titles in The Nursery Collection: Noisy, Bathwater is Hot, Two Shoes, New Shoes, When We Went to the Park, and All Shapes and Sizes.
