Did you know? Originally, illustrations were included in books for decoration? Everything changed in the mid 1800s, when Randolph Caldecott started creating pictures that helped to tell the story!
Eye-catching designs, colorful illustrations - art is an important part of helping young readers develop an imagination and brings book characters to life in their minds. Book illustrations aren’t just pretty pictures – they are the visual aids that create memorable characters and help children enter into an imaginative world as they visualize the stories they are reading.
