How many kinds of green are there? There's the lush green of a forest on a late spring day, the fresh, juicy green of a just-cut lime, the incandescent green of a firefly, and the vivid aquamarine of a tropical sea. In her newest book, Caldecott and Geisel Honor Book author Laura Vaccaro Seeger fashions an homage to a single color and, in doing so, creates a book that will delight and, quite possibly astonish you.
Among Laura Vaccaro Seeger's many distinctive books for children are First the Egg--a Caldecott Honor Book and a Geisel Honor Book; One Boy--a Geisel Honor Book; and Dog and Bear: Two Friends, Three Stories--winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book award. Laura lives on Long Island with her husband, Chris, their two sons, Drew and Dylan, and their dog, Copper. (Amazon)
Laura Vaccaro Seeger is a hands-down favorite for creating remarkable concept books for the young child and those who share them. They are so effective in helping the child visualize just what she wants them to learn. The die-cuts that she uses to entice them from one page to the next are often unexpected and always genius in design. (Ages 2 and up)
