Children's Books 9.10

An Egg is Quiet, written by Dianna Aston, has lots of egg trivia and pretty watercolors of over 60 eggs by Sylvia Long. The paintings look almost real and the many egg patterns make the book a great resource.

Lisbeth Zwerger has a beautiful way with watercolors. Hers are always delicate, sparse, and enchanting. She illustrates classic stories like this one, The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry.
