A great blog, 100 Scope Notes, has a conversation between two super talented picture book illustrators - both Caldecott winners. Erin Stead won for A Sick Day for Amos McGee and is relatively early in her career ... Jerry Pinkney is a picture book veteran with lots of amazing work under his belt.
Click here and read their conversation with each other...learning about their individual creative processes is really interesting!
The whole thing has me remembering some of my favorite picture books. The classics like Green Eggs and Ham, Bedtime for Frances and Good Night Moon ... but also some great lesser knowns that we love around here like The Night I Followed the Dog and It Could Always be Worse.
Tell me: What are some favorite picture books in your house?
