Worked on a creative writing project with children between ages 8-10, using this delightful picture book on the idea of infinity.
the book explores the enormity of all things that makes the perceived every day infinite: space, numbers, time and life-force through the persistent questions of an eight-year-old girl.
writing is simple, illustrations soft, muted and unassuming. a quiet-type book that addresses the noisy question that has gotten under the skin of most of us: can we hold the infinite in a vessel and what does that vessel look like? read: infinity and me by kate hosford, illustrations by gabi swiatkowska #infinity#infinityandme#gabiswiatkowska#kidlit#picturebook#readingisfundamental

This little unit hits the shelves in australia and the uk this week!
#errol! is a brand new picture book from internationally published cbca notable author @zannilouise, and muggins here.
the book tells the beautifully sparse tale of one stubborn little penguin’s antarctic adventures, after he ignores his mum.
packed with heaps of opportunity for dialogic reading, zanni’s story is instantly relatable to any parent, guardian, carer or general wrangler of tiny humans.
errol was a pleasure to paint, and is a ripper read… i hope you agree.
thanks to @_beckyoung_ at @scholastic_au for your vision and wisdom!

“but what do you do if you’re infested with giraffes? first you spot the problem.”
back to my story. scroll down my instagram feed to see the earlier pages. this picture sat half coloured for nearly two months i think i’m scared to finish this project but i’m pushing on. i started the next drawing today but it’s much more challenging scene to draw than this one. #create#illustration#storytelling#giraffe#kidlitart#kidlit#picturebook#copic
