beautiful book week: barbara mcclintock
the fantastic drawings of danielle by barbara mcclintock is a must have for all artistically inclined children (and adults). it is about a little girl who, no matter how hard she tries, can't help herself from drawing wildly surreal versions of reality. this is in contrast to her father, a photographer, who can't quite comprehend why she won't draw things more realistically.
another fun book in tashi's collection by barbara mcclintock is molly and the magic wishbone. it is about a girl-kitten who is granted one big wish by a fairy godmother.
this author/illustrator has many other titles and her drawings are simply delicious!
