First Spring then Summer

As spring winds down to summer and we all look forward to days playing in the sun I thought I would share a thought provoking book that helps explain the question of which came first the chicken or the egg. First the Egg by Emmy Award winning artist Laura Vaccaro Seeger shows the reader many firsts then seconds in life. First the tadpole then the frog. First seed then the flower. First the word then the story. The pages are die cut as seed becomes flower, paint becomes picture and word becomes story. I love the use of canvas and paint to create textured, simplistic yet vivid artwork. This is a book where everyday life becomes extraordinary. A book that helps transform spring into summer School year to summer vacation. .
