FEATURED: Four by Tana Hoban

Born and raised in Philadelphia and educated at Moore College of Art, Hoban first came to the attention of Edward Steichen who included her photographs of children in an exhibition mounted at the Museum of Modern Art. She went on to write, design and illustrate over one hundred books, many for children.

"My books are about everyday things that are so ordinary that one tends to overlook them...I try to rediscover these things and share them with children. But there is more to each picture than a first look reveals. I always try to include something new, something to reach for." -Tana Hoban
