The fact that I work as a children’s librarian means that, though I have no children of my own, I read a lot of picture books. I even have favorite picture book authors whose new releases make me very excited. (Who, you ask? Mo Willems, Oliver Jeffers, Melanie Watt, Marie Louise Gay and Emily Gravett among others… also the illustrators Rogé and Stéphane Jorisch.)
The Guardian has put up a great article in which that same Emily Gravett shows us how to draw a dragon. (I’m reminded a little of Trogdor ^_^)
And in the video below Benedict Cumberbatch reads Little Red Hen. Not a book by one of my favorites by I’d listen to him read his grocery list. Enjoy:
Do you have favorite picture books?
