Children's Art Inspired by their Favorite Books

The moments we spend reading to our toddlers will one day be some of our most precious memories as parents.

I love the idea of capturing those memories in the form of art. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite examples of children’s book art. They’d be great additions to children’s spaces now, and mementos of treasured moments later on.

Which is your favorite?
