We’re all about summer reading. On a beach, in a park, or in an air-conditioned home — books can go everywhere. For school-aged children, summer reading is a serious must; it keeps the mind going and ready for the upcoming school year. But no worries; there are plenty of fun books out there, with great pictures. We’re currently showing off several in our exhibition Children’s Book Illustrators and Authors Come Alive at the Children’s Center at 42nd Street.
This illustration by Paul O. Zelinsky is included in the exhibit; it’s titled “But the Gale Nearly Blew Angel Off” and is from the book Dust Devil by Anne Isaacs. Other children’s books highlighted include Sky Boys: How They Built the Empire State Building, Me…Jane (about Jane Goodall), and Henry in Love. Next time you’re on 42nd Street, stop by the Children’s Center and take a look, with or without a young one!
