@chrisaakins Yes! For sure! As a mom and preschool teacher there are several “must haves” that when they get loved to death I replace them. Those are among them. Also on my list are: The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Paul Galdone, Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh, The Seven Chinese Sisters by Kathy Tucker ( and beautifully illustrated by Grace Lin), Miss Suzy by Miriam Young, and everything by Beatrix Potter.
I always loved Tuesday by David Wiesner and The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Van Allsburg. We even bought the giant portfolio of the Harris Burdick book and had a couple framed. They are part of the fabric of our home now.
I am loving seeing everyone’s additions. The more I think of the more come to mind. Books are so precious. I guess that’s part of why we are wanting to illustrate them!!!
