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.

Children Books: An enlightening pleasure

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

‘A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy.’ There are people who find reading a book an uphill task but, a good book can be really rejuvenating and delightful. You can be a reader of any kind. Some find fiction extremely gripping; others find their niche in biographies and autobiographies. A book sows the seeds of civilization for the generations to come. So, if children find their companion in books from the start, they can never go astray.

Gone are the days, when the works of foreign authors seldom reached the Indian readers. As the reading community is growing (Thanks to novels like Harry Potter, The Lord Of The Rings and The Da Vinci Code which managed to gather a lot of admirers and made the present generation believe that books can be
real fun!) the book market of today is flooded with manuscripts from the foreign authors. Same is true for children books. We have a number of authors both from Indian and foreign origin introducing their efforts to make children grow up as ideal humans. Children books are basically fictions bearing a moral to teach the kids basic virtues. Authors like Enid Blyton, Gail Haley, Katherine Paterson etc. have created a virtual world where the kids celebrate their childhood. In their own special way, these authors had tried to induce virtues like honesty, modesty, bravery and diligence in the tender hearts. Though these stories aim at the readers belonging to the age bracket 4 to 12, they sometimes hook up the elders too. Even the mothers enjoy reading and narrating these stories to their young ones.
