I picked up What’s Your Favorite Animal? on a whim and was happily surprised to find it as satisfying for adults as it is for children. (That’s the test of great children’s literature you know!) In it, there is a medley of picture book artists who submitted illustrations of their personal favorite animal and a small anecdote or explanation why. It’s great fun comparing the different styles of art and well-read children will find it a fun piece of trivia to see if they can match the artwork with the books they have previously read by that particular artist. Some are obvious… like Eric Carle. Others require just a pinch more thought: like Peter Sis. At any rate, it’s a fun little diversion from typical picture book fare and something any bibliozealot can appreciate!
