This week we’re starting a new section on the blog called “Kids Nook Loves.” This is where our favorite illustrators, artists, and our recommended links for games will go.
This week I wanted to share a popular artist Christian Robinson. He’s illustrated books such as Gaston (one of my personal favorites) and Last Stop on Market Street. He also did the illustrations for a historical picture book about Josephine Baker, which is full of fun costumes and whimsical scenes.
In fact, all of his illustrations are fun for kids to look at. His style seems pretty simplistic, but there are details in his illustrations that make going through the stories special. Just look at those cookies on the right! Colorful and delicious!
His website is over at The Art of Fun. If you like what you see there, you should definitely check out his books! And if you’re at Kids Nook, ask for Gaston, the story of a little white puppy who feels a little out of place in his family.
