I teach high school and often have used illustrations, with children's
literature included, as one of the project to be completed in the contracts
my students have to fulfill. I am always on the look-out for really
outstanding and inovative illustrators. Since I have grandchildren, I
purchase some of the children's books to have at my house and to use when
needed at school. These have been a wonderful resource!

I would like to know more about Barbara Kiefer's book. What is its title?
Please let me know what others have to say if they have used it.
