Who are some of your favorite children’s book artists?

Monday, July 11th, 2011

There are dozens of artists and writers in children’s books that I admire, but I’d have to say my two favorites are probably Kevin Henkes (“Julius The Baby of the World”) and Shel Silverstein (“The Missing Piece”). I love how they write, and how their pictures look deceptively simple. They work so beautifully with the words. I just love their books.

Aside from those two, I really enjoy Lane Smith, (I love “The Happy Hocky Family”) Peggy Rathmann (Officer Buckle & Gloria), David Shannon, (“No David, No!”–a former teacher of mine) and many, many others.
