The first picture book I received as a child was Beauty and the Beast, illustrated by Hilary Knight. I credit the illustrations in this book for influencing my desire to be an illustrator. What picture book influenced you growing up?
Please add a comment to this post introducing yourself to the class. Since we will be focusing on Children’s Picture Books this semester I thought it would be interesting to hear how a childhood book influenced you growing up. You could also include your academic interests, why you chose your major, what you enjoy reading, listening to, watching, and doing in your spare time, or anything else you want to share (include your pronouns, if you wish).
Before next class, please add your introduction and read the comments.
