I am a big fan of American artist Charley Harper. His wildlife illustrations are simply stunning. The thoroughly modern aesthetic that shines through in all his pieces combined with the colours, geometric shapes and altogether brilliant way he drew our environment and animals amazes me. It perfectly fits what he called his style of art: minimal realism.
Now babies and children can fully appreciate his artwork in the form of two books and a set of flashcards that have just been released featuring his vibrant illustrations.
123’s and ABC’s are great books to introduce young ones to numbers and letters with graphic colours and shapes that will stir their imagination.
The flashcards feature the ABC’s with cards such as B is for Bird and L is for Ladybug. Then as your child gets older they can turn the flashcards over and form two large floor puzzles with the cards. What an ingenious idea.
The books and flashcards are all available to purchase from Fishpond from $12.43.
Also, at We Heart Books, check out the new shipment of An Awesome Book by Dallas Clayton. We featured this book back in January and it’s now available to purchase in Australia – but be quick as it is sure to sell out fast.
