Some thoughts on the beauty of children’s book

I have two children and hundreds of their books as well. What has always
impressed me about children’s books is how well made they are. The stories
are usually really good and well written. The books themselves are mostly
well constructed. But most of all, the art work is superb. The drawings,
water colours and more are sublime. It’s why I can never tire of the better
ones, even if I have read them 20 times. The illustrations are rich with
details that you miss the first few times but eventually pick up. Like the
red shoes on this little boy.
