A Book of Babies by Il Sung Na is a Friday Favorite because I love the art that Il Sung Na does. Even before opening the book, I see his artwork and I knw I'll love it.
This title is about Spring and all the babies that are a part of it. It contrasts and compares babies that walk, that need help, have scales, or come from a pouch.
The illustrations were created by combining handmade painterly textures with digitally generated layers, which were then compiled in Adobe Photoshop. The handmade painterly textures are enhanced by the thin black lines. I love collage, and this looks like collage.
I'll use this book in Storytime about baby animals and Spring.
