We do a lot of reading out loud in our house. Because of this, I try to pick out books with some snappy design and writing style. My favorite of all time is Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's gift to mankind, which I always read in the voice of Allen Ginsberg (try it sometime, it really spices it up). Here are two new books that we added to our collection this Winter. The first is Iggy Peck Architect by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts. It's eye candy for me, and I'm planting the design seed in their heads. The other is Stop Snoring Bernard! by Zachariah Ohora. This book is incredibly fun to read, and has such a sweet story. I love the saturated colors and illustration style.
