Picture this: Children's book art gains mainstream acclaim
A neat article from the AP about how children's picture book art is gaining cred in art circles. I do wish they'd shown a few illustrations, especially when they're talking about Ezra Jack Keats or modernism. But hey, it's good to see it there at all.
Full disclosure: Until I took a course in children's lit in library school, I tended to skip over illustrations too. Silly me.
Thanks to Kids Lit for the link.
