The ABC of It: Why Picture Books Matter
The ABC of It: Why Picture Books Matter.
The exhibit was incredible. To list just a few of my favorite things, there were two hand painted William Blake prints from Songs of Innocence, a little car that looks like it came straight out of Norton Juster’s The Phantom Tollbooth (I had to wait impatiently for a little girl to vacate the car so I could sit in it and make my friend take a picture), the bedroom from Goodnight Moon recreated so you could walk right through it, a fuzzy cutout of one of the monsters from Where The Wild Things Are, a constantly growing and diminishing Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and a telephone you can pick up to listen to E.B. White read from Charlotte’s Web.
