Mommy Read It Again: Two Picture Books with Gorgeous Illustrations

Just wanted to highlight two recent favorites from our library trips. Both of these are visually stunning for completely different reasons.

 

The Little Red Fish by Taeunn Yoo

I thought the fantastic intricate sepia toned drawings (with splashes of red for the fish) would be too sophisticated for my 2-y.o. to enjoy, but I was completely wrong. She LOVES this one and asks for it again and again. There are lots of hidden shapes and shadows to look out for. I also love the red fabric cover that begs to be touched.

Gary and Ray by Sarah Adams

A fun story about a lonely gorilla and a colorful sunbird.  I’m partial to jungle scenes and love the wild, colorful illustrations in this one.
