Simply Beautiful

I was drawn to "When You Were Small" by the illustration on its cover. I was altogether thrilled to discover page after page of whimsical delights by artist Julie Morstad and a charming story by Sara O'Leary to boot! Satch giggles every time we get to the page about the tea pot.

Not just another counting book...."Count the Birdies" by Matthew Porter contains images so lovely, you'll want to hang them on your wall....and you can...you can purchase originals or prints at his website.

And here, Matthew has done it again with his ABC book...and with some nice surprises like..."V is for Vole"! I especially love that the paintings allow some of the wood to show through the paint...it kind of adds a little cheekiness to the term board book.

These three beauties are published by Simply Read Books...I think they should change their name to Simply Beautiful!

Simply Read books are beautiful, aren't they. You might want to check out the Robin Mitchell - Judith Steedman collaborations they publish too. Sunny is my son's favourite. Robin was the designer on our book and is partly responsible for it being such a pretty little thing.
Enjoying your site.
take care,
Sara
