Because I have so much spare time (ha ha) I have also started another blog to try to keep track of some of the great children’s books we’re finding to read with George. Funnily enough I haven’t been that great at keeping up with it, but I did manage to write the first part of a post on Russell Ayto last night. He is a really great, versatile illustrator who I hadn’t heard of before, not that my knowledge of children’s illustrators went much past Eric Carle and Richard Scarry! We were going through a stack of library books yesterday when I realised that a good percentage of the ones I pick are illustrated by Russell Ayto. So if you aren’t familiar with his work have a quick look at my other blog – Reading to George – for the first of a couple of posts on his work.
