The girls have been reading Dream Animals, By Emily Winfield Martin, pretty much everyday since we got it—pouring over the beautiful paintings loaded with whimsical details. It's such special book. It's the type of book that rewards careful observation, which my girls love. It has a dreamy, magical feeling—perfect for reading under the covers with lots of pillows and a flashlight.
We all loved the video for the Dream Animals, it has really nice shots of the artwork and shows her sketches. She talks about concept for the book and tells about a childhood nightmare that made me laugh outloud. Congrats Emily!!
