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!

Some Valentine Love for the Whole Family From Tasha Tudor!

This rich and varied collection compiled by beloved artist Tasha Tudor explores the beauty of all kinds of love through a combination of poems, letters, songs, and stories. 
Each eloquent expression of love is interpreted through Tasha's exquisite watercolors, from the sincerity of Yeats's enduring love to the passion of Cathy in Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights
Also included is a charming section about Tasha Tudor's own family traditions for that very special day of love -- Valentine's Day. 
You'll find directions for making valentine bouquets, delicious cakes, and even unique decorative cards, as well as descriptions of holiday projects and events for the whole family. 
Beautifully designed and lovingly illustrated, this distinctive treasury invites parents and children to explore together the meaning of love...every day of the year.
All For Love by Tasha Tudor was originally published in 1984.  This edition is a second printing, published in 2000.  

One of the first posts I wrote for my blog was about the life and work of Tasha Tudor and another favorite author/illustrator, Virginia Lee Burton.  If you care to read it,  go here.  You can read my post about Tasha Tudor's Christmas books here.
