From Song to Book

That's What I'd Do by Jewel, illustrated by Amy June Bates is a beautiful bonding with baby book.  The illustrations for this book are rendered in watercolor, gouache, pencil and pastel.  It creates a soft, safe place to share the love of a parent and baby.  Although the pictures depict a mother, it would be just as wonderful for baby and daddy, too.  Bates has a blog, where you can preview a some of her portfolio and learn more about her.  I find her paintings calming and full of joy and whimsy.
