The Scraps Book: Notes From a Colorful Life by Lois Ehlert

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom raised the bar on joyous, vibrant illustrations and, not surprisingly, Ehlert has outdone herself again and again. In this wonderful autobiography children will see that creating art and making books is something they can do themselves. Ehlert’s tone is so inviting and her asides next to the pictures make it seem as though she wrote them just for you. She incorporates illustrations from her large body of work to explain different things she does with her painting. Children will put down this book and feel like they can make a book too. This is autobiography like nothing else and it is perfectly suited to young children.
