The children's picture book has become an art form in and of itself, attracting not just kids but collectors and specialty library collections. Connie Kirk's COMPANION TO AMERICAN CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOKS is an invaluable reference to any who would collect or learn about these shorter books for kids, as well as picture books intended for young adults and older kids. Over 400 entries on authors, illustrators, picture book awards, and printing technology include basic publication details, summaries, and facts. Anecdotes, reviews of media used (watercolor, etchings, etc.), and subjects make it easy to locate specifics on different types of picture book offerings.
