Beautiful Colors

Baby Bear Sees Blue by Ashley Wolff is a wonderful watercolor with done by printing linoleum blocks in black on Arches Cover paper and then hand colored with watercolor. Follow baby bear as he explores his world for the first time.  Ashely's Website has a lot of information about Ashley and her work.  I enjoy reading about an author or illustrator and how they do their work.  
I enjoy artwork like Ashley makes because of the black ink's contrast, it's very appealing to the eye.  I would use this story in Storytime on a theme of Spring, or Colors for preschoolers. This book would work wonderfully with just parent and child or grandparent and child, also.  There are lots of details and things to talk about on each spread.
