Lately I've been knee-deep in Beto's Burrito and have been SO inspired by other peoples' children's books so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.

The King's Sixth Finger – made by the talented Jolby & Friends. It was through these folks I was inspired to do a Kickstarter project for Beto, and they generously offered advice as I set up my page and got started. http://www.thekings6thfinger.com/

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore – by Moonbot Studios LA. I don't have an ipad, but this story-app makes me want to buy one.

C-Growl, The Daring Little Airplane – by Nat McHaffie, a good friend of my landlord's, talented artist and an airplane pilot. Her lovely illustrations are inspiring the educational aspect of Beto's Burrito (teaching Spanish vocabulary) http://www.amazon.com/C-Growl-Daring-Airplane-Nat-McHaffie/dp/1551250152

Dandelion by Don Freeman – first published in the 60s, this is far from a modern book, but it was closest in size and binding to the specs for Beto's Beto. It was nice to hold it in my hands and get a sense of the weight (and it's a really classic, feel-good story) http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/869640.Dandelion

The Nutmeg Princess by Richardo Keens-Douglas, illustrated by Annouchka Galouchko – I found a signed copy in the library that wasn't in their system, so the librarian gave it to me! I've been loving the detailed patterns, bright colors, and flagrant whimsy of the illustrations. http://www.themonitor.ca/Entertainment/2010-02-04/article-934093/The-Nutmeg-Princess/1

What are your favorite children stories? Do they inspire your own work?

A ranking of countries in government-mandated maternity leave. US is dead last, Canada did pretty well.

I know for some reason I couldn't get it to display inline. Google annoys me – since they own everything now and I have separate accounts for some things, I have to sign out of all my other accounts in order to check my settings for a different one. Who do they think they are. : )

An article-interview I did a while back with Dan Rose of Photoshop Etiquette, recently published on Webdesigner Depot.
