I’ve mentioned the artwork of Ida Pearle before. I’m a big fan. So how happy was I when I found out about her new book? It’s called A Child’s Day: An Alphabet of Play and it is beautiful. Q is for quack — while a child marches in a parade of ducks. R is for ride — as in a ride on a zebra.

The book is full of happy colors and compositions. Great patterns and imaginative ideas. And you can snag your own hardbound copy for about 10 bucks at Amazon.
