Jan Brett

One of the children’s illustrators I like and would like to feature today is Jan Brett. Her books always have such pretty and very detailed illustrations! We own quite a few of her books and we always enjoy checking them out of the library too.

On her website she always has a lot of coloring pages  and activity pages to accompany her different books or for different holidays. Those always provide loads of fun for children who (at a younger age) just like to scribble on them or making detailed drawings for older kids. Some of the activities featured on there involve not only coloring, but also mini-projects, like making your own bookmark or designing your own hat.

She also has a lot of educational materials on her site, like various flashcards and printable games for kids.

So be sure to check out her website for a lot of kid-oriented activities and your local library for a lot of her wonderful books. Here are some of our favorite books written and/or illustrated by her:

1. The Umbrella (my son especially liked reading it after our trip to Costa Rica last spring)
2. The Hat
3. The Mitten
4. Berlioz the Bear
5. On Noah’s Ark
6. The Night Before Christmas
7. The Owl and the Pussycat
8. Town Mouse, Country Mouse
9. The Three Snow Bears
