life is better with…kadir nelson

At work last month, my read alouds were limited to titles in celebration of Black History Month. Which means that I got to stare at a ton of Kadir Nelson‘s amazing illustrations. He is brilliant. How great is is that he illustrates a massive amount of children’s books then goes and does a crazy amazing album cover for Drake?!

This guy…I love him.

Here are some of my other favorites

This last one is from his latest book, Baby Bear, which is about the sweetest thing ever.
