Children's books serve a dual purpose: to entertain and educate young readers while also reflecting the historical context and values of their time. This exhibition showcases the illustrations and illustrators behind these timeless stories, spanning from early 20th-century pen and ink drawings by Sarah Noble Ives to modern digital creations like those by Mo Willems. Featured are original artworks from Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak's Wild Things, and Garth Williams' Stuart Little, alongside contributions from classic illustrators such as Rosemary Wells, Richard Scarry, Chris Van Allsburg, and Hilary Knight. Beloved characters like Babar, Eloise, and The Cat in the Hat come to life in this exploration of children's literature history.
