WHEN BLUE MET EGG
So I took my son to Lindsay Ward's picture book signing at Room Service boutique. *Hi Lindsay*
This book, published by Dial is, in a word, ADORABLE. Blue lives in Central Park, mistakes a snowball for an egg, and so their adventure begins.
Lindsay's awesome artwork includes sketches and cut paper collage. My little bean had fun finding all the recycled treasures Lindsay hid in her pages to make the NYC buildings--address books, math quizzes, etc.
Here he is, below, with coloring pages from the book Lindsay had at the signing. He was also *very* interested in a eggshell blue vintage typewriter the boutique used in one of their displays. He thought it was some kind of new invention! :D
I also made some bird necklaces for Lindsay's opening (and for the shop's inventory)!
Anyway, if you have a little one in your life, you must BUY this book!
Here's the NEW YORK TIMES review!
