Writer Spotlight: Picture book writer/illustrators Don and Audrey Wood

I wanted to take a minute and recognize some of the best, if not THE best creators of picture books working today. Don and Audrey Wood create delightful, beautiful books with the most stunning illustrations I have seen in any book. I read the Wood's books as a child, as have my younger siblings. Even if I never have children of my own, I plan on owning at least two of their incredible books: Heckedy Peg, a beautiful story about a mother of seven children named for the days of the week, and Piggies, a picture book about the piggies on our fingers that has the delightful, awe-inspiring illustrations I mentioned.

You may already be familiar with the Woods and these books, but if not, acquaint yourself. Whether you have children or not. You won't regret it.
