Australia has such a wealth of talent when it comes to children's picture book authors and illustrators. I plan to celebrate this in 2011 by concentrating on one author and/ or illustrator a month. I'll look at a all or a selection of their picture books and explore why myself and my kids love these books so much. Here are the authors and illustrators I plan to explore and the month I intend to concentrate on.
January - Graeme Base July - Margaret Wild
February - Jeannie Baker August - Bob Graham
March - Alison Lester September - Julie Vivas
April - Mem Fox October - Pamela Allen
May - Jackie French November - Patricia Mullins
June - Shaun Tan December - Bruce Whatley
Each month I will post a list of the books I plan to look at. I will then either review them one by one or over a few posts. Not sure yet! This list is also available as a separate page from my blog header that will be updated regularly as well.
