Children's Book Illustrations at the Mazza Museum in Findlay, OH

Children's books play an important role in education.
Little ones are enticed by enchanting illustrations
as they're read to while nestled in comfy, loving laps.
Next comes that magical process of recognizing letters and words,
and soon a love of books blooms into a love for reading.

Within Ohio's University of Findlay lies a real treasure: The Mazza Museum.
With a goal of promoting literacy, the museum attractively exhibits an 
8,000-piece collection of original artwork from children's books.
Popular illustrators such as Sophie BlackallMary Engelbreit
Don Wood, and Eric Carle are featured.

Original illustrations hang framed on the walls
with their corresponding books placed beneath them.

I was thrilled to recognize titles that I loved reading to my children,
as well as books from my own childhood!

Such a delightful place to visit!
Thank you, Lindsey & Julie, for sharing this special place with your Aunt Lu!
