Wonderful Art book for kids (young and old)

A friend found this book at Big Lots for $3.

Artist to Artist: 23 Major Illustrators Talk to Children about their Art.
It's a delightful book. Published in 2007 it is written for children with articles by the illustrators and examples of their art work in full color on lovely heavy paper. (Not just for kids!) You will read and see art work by illustrators such as Chris Van Allsburg, Leo Lionni, Steven Kellogg, Jane Dyer, Rosemary Wells and Maurice Sendak just to name a few. Wow...what a find. So keep your eyes out for this book for your kids, grandkids (or your own coffee table). Put those Christmas gifts away early!!!

You can go onto Barnes and Noble's used and out of print site and find it for about $3 (plus shipping) there. Original book was $30 and the $ goes to benefit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture book art. It's fun to look at that website too!
