8 Illustrations That Prove Children’s Books Are Art
When was the last time you read a children’s book simply for yourself? If you haven’t since you were a child, we highly suggest you give it another shot. When we’re not gifting them, we here at Chronicle Books adore collecting children’s books.
Beautiful art, large pages, and touching words make us feel connected to both our child and aesthete within. The stunners below are from some of our upcoming books this spring, whose words are just as brilliant as their artwork.
Forever or a Day by Sarah Jacoby
This Bridge Will Not Be Gray by Dave Eggers, art by Tucker Nichols
Mabel and Sam at Home by Linda Urban, illustrated by Hadley Hooper
