Britain’s author-illustrator Ruth Brown has created many wonderful children’s books. I especially delight in One Stormy Night, wherein we follow the mystifying after-dark travels of a white dog.
Imagine written and illustrated by Ruth Brown
Concept book (opposites) published by Andersen Press
In Imagine Ms. Brown explores opposites and the power of imagination. Simple text and luminescent, painterly illustrations make for an exceptional concept book for preschool.
when you’re half asleep,
those big white clouds
look just like sheep…
A young boy gazes out his bedroom window, sleepily watching puffy white clouds drift by. Soon he is transported to a spring meadow where he sees a slow tortoise and a fast hare, finishing their race “first” and “last.”
Simple text and lovely illustrations contribute to a concept book for preschool that wholeheartedly celebrates the power of imagination.
