I have recently found a beautiful range of books by Gyo Fujikawa – an American children’s author and illustrator born in 1908 to Japanese parents. Her books are full of every day things and written in such a simple way. She was recognozed as being the first illustrator to incorporate different races in her books before it was mainstream to do so. Little ‘T’ loves having the ‘Sleepy Time’ book read to her before she goes to sleep each night, I’ll be keeping my eye out for more of these to buy!
