Picture book of the week

All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Marla Freeze, Beach Lane Books Sept 2009.

Illustrators are so crucial in picture books! If you love our favorite picture book, The Seven Silly Eaters, you will love the illustrations in this one by the same artist. In a good picture book, the illustrations have the power to take you to another world, even if temporarily. Illustrator Marla Freeze's style is captivating, warm, delightful!

I am planning on inspiring my art students to work on an illustration style project, because this book has a lot of sky/weather related pictures.
