Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Google Doodle today in honor of Mary Blair's 100th birthday

Click HERE to read my daughter, Mary's past post about Mary Blair and some of the classic children's books she's illustrated.

Do your children love the Small World Ride at Disneyland?  They have Mary Blair to thank.  She was one of Walt Disney's favorite artists and she worked on quite a few animated Disney films...

My husband I were recently at Disneyland and saw their tribute to Mary Blair in an exhibition of her work at the Disney Gallery, "The Colors of Mary Blair". 

If you missed it, you can view this beautiful exhibit on the YouTube video below:
