CHiLDREN BOOK LOVE : #1

(This post contains affiliate links which mean I may receive a small compensation for a purchase. Find more about what that means here.)


I've always loved children books and have collected them for years because they have always inspired me as an artist. You can find some of the best illustrations by some amazingly talented artists in children books. When I use to make greeting cards, you could always find me in the library looking through Hallmarks extensive collection. Over the past few years I haven't been as up to date with what is out there. Now that I will be bringing a new little one into the world I've been a bit obsessed with starting a collection for our son. Lets be completely honest, most of the books are just ones we've been wanting but it will be fun to share them as learn which ones become his favorites. I have a strong passion for design and illustration so that is most of what draws me to a book but the stories or message matter as well. I wanted to start off this series of book finds with a few we have saved to purchase soon or ones we've added to our baby registry. I have not read all of these books so I'm purely sharing based on the visuals and what I've seen so far. I will share more info in the future once I've had a chance to enjoy these books with our son.
