  1. funny, I was surprised how many of these I didn’t know. That wouldn’t be my choice for Seuss, but at least he was represented. I’d also represent Sandra Boynton, probably with “Moo Baa La La La”, the first book both of my kids “read”.

    1. If you are looking for amazing illustrators I am working on a post about them, but in the meantime (depending on the age group) you might want to look up Fred Marcellino (The Pelican Chorus and the Trumpet of the Swan), Tim Raglin (Birthday ABC), Wade Zahares (Window Music) and Hilary Knight (Where’s Wallace?). Helen Oxenbury also did a lovely Alice in Wonderland.
