The Big Adventures of Little Hands
Text by Svetlana Lebedeva

"Little hands had a fun day
Little hands went out to play
Little hands rocked on a swing
Little hands heard the birds sing..."
'A rhyming bedtime story for toddlers to reflect on all the adventures they've had that day. Little kids all over the world go on big adventures every day. They pet, they touch, they explore, they play. This is a book about little hands and discoveries they make in the wonderful, big world. Perfect for bedtime reading to help reflect, remember and prepare for new adventures the next day!'
For this charming poem book I decided to create collage illustrations - I wanted to achive playful and dynamic effect. Starting with crayons, pastels and markers I moved to scissors and cut outs.
There are strong textures followed by vibrant colours.
