The artwork was created with acrylic paints and colored pencils on hot-press watercolor paper. Take a look at Elmer's Artroom from Henry Cole's website to follow his creative process. Stay on his website and look around, you can paint a picture, check out Henry's favorites, and put together a puzzle.
I love to find new things on an author's or illustrator's website.
I will use this book for Storytime for Preschoolers. This year, 2012, the first week of the month I'm going to have a 'theme-less' storytime that features new books.
