an awesome bookPosted: November 10, 2009
My birthday was in September. I turned 24. Usually my even-numbered birthdays aren’t that great. I wasn’t expecting much from 24, but it turned out to be pretty great. My dearest friend Steph sent me a great birthday gift that included this great book. An Awesome Book, if you will, by Dallas Clayton.
An Awesome Book, despite its wonder illustrations, is also a book with a good cause. It’s apart of Awesome World Foundation, which is a non-profit organization to promote child literacy in the US and worldwide. For every one book sold, one book is delivered directly to shelters, schools, hospitals, etc.
I love the careful lines and imaginative illustrations.
The detail in the book is great- something to really spend some time looking at. It’s a book that’s both fun for kids will interest adults as well. When that can be achieved, I think you have a really successful book.
