Wide Eyed Editions, aka, Beautiful Non-Fiction Children’s Books

In perusing the children’s non-fiction shelves earlier this week, I discovered a new press imprint called Wide Eyed Editions. They publish gorgeous, full-color, large-scale children’s non-fiction picture books out of The Quatro Group. Their books are too beautiful not to be known worldwide, or at least, featured in a blog post. Here are my two favorite at the moment:

Wonder GardenThe Wonder Garden
by Kristjana S Williams and Jenny Broom

Publisher Description: Open the gates of the Wonder Garden to explore five of Earth’s most extraordinary habitats, each filled with incredible creatures and epic scenery. Trek through the Amazon Rainforest, travel to the Chihuahuan Desert, dive in the Great Barrier Reef, delve deep into the Black Forest and stand on the roof of the world – the Himalayan Mountains – to see nature at its wildest.

Breathtaking, engraved illustrations bring to life Earth’s spectacular Wonder Garden.

Great Barrier ReefThis was my favorite illustration because I love water and all manner of aquatic life. Plus, the octopus is great inspiration for the water landscape 3/4 tattoo sleeve I’m working on.
50 StatesThe 50 States
by Sol Linero and Gabrielle Balkan

Publisher Description: Be inspired by the inventiveness, beauty and diversity of the United States in this curious collection of 50 fact-filled maps. Explore thousands of wondrous locations and be awed by the achievements of hundreds of people who helped make America what it is today.

Each map includes an introduction, trivia box and state symbols. A guide to the presidents and state flags feature in the back matter.

Celebrate, explore, enjoy!

By clicking onto the titles, you will be taken to the publisher’s website where you can see more of the interior pages of both of these books.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
