Illustrated by Alain Grée Published by Button Books
My Illustrated Encyclopedia is a beautiful collection of illustrations from the archives of Alain Grée; Child friendly and engaging page spreads, this makes a lovely first encyclopedia for young children. It offers simple but interesting facts, and covers a broad range of subjects, for example, flowers, woodlands, animals, wildlife, seasons, weather and landscapes, food, space and transport etc.
With labels, names, and an offering of facts, there's just enough information for young minds to take in. I believe there's enough information to hold a child's attention and be a starting point for further discussion. With a retro feel, the illustrations are engaging and sweet. It would make a beautiful gift for any inquisitive young child and to be honest I quite looking through it to admire Alain Grée's illustrations. Available soon.
