Pass It Down - Leonard Marcus

Five Picture-Book Families Make Their Mark
Walker & Co., 2007
Really interesting
Endpapers: Glossy bright yellow

What an interesting book! It tells about five different families - all familiar to picture book readers - with photos of the family and illustrations of their work. I was particularly looking at the Myers family (since I'm on a roll with Creech's Love That Dog and Hate That Cat, but was very interested in the other four stories as well.

Included are:
The CREWS and JONAS family: Donald Crews, Ann Jonas, and Nina Crews
The HURD family: Clement and Edith Thacher Hurd and Thacher Hurd
The MYERS family: Walter Dean Myers and Christopher Myers
The PINKNEY family: Jerry Pinkney and Brian Pinkney
The ROCKWELL family: Harlow and Anne Rockwell and Lizzy Rockwell
