Children’s Book Illustrators for Obama
Here’s my thinking on the matter. I could chomp on about politics on this blog all day and that would be fine. But really, as political as I am I really need to see that the topics covered apply to children’s literature in some fashion. So when I was sent this amazing poster of Children’s Book Illustrators for Obama… well that I just had to put up.
Awww. Look at Chato and Ms. Bindergarten! He brings dogs and cats together in a common cause. On their blog PictureBook People for Obama (a good place to look for all the names here) people are asked to print off this poster and post it far and wide for all to see. I bet that if you ask some of them nicely they’ll send you high quality scans too.
To be fair, if Children’s Book Illustrators for McCain ever sends me a poster I’ll put that up too. Any takers?
Thanks to Maria van Lieshout for the link.
