lois ehlert, children's book author + illustrator
Over the past few months, Silvie and I have been spending our mornings in the toddler's section of the Westport Library. It's an amazing place; they host free programs for kids of all ages, and they also have really great toddler play areas. While my daughter entertains herself and discovers new-found friends; I sit aside and thumb through some of the artful, inspiring books that surround us.
Recently I discovered the work of Lois Ehlert, a wonderful artist, author and illustrator. I find her books to be witty and wise, and wonderfully associated with nature.
