Since we've just had the monarchs migrating through our yard, this snowflake really hits home with me. Also, I am finding all these amazing websites of children's illustrators that I never knew about before - my library is expanding very quickly! Thanks for a wonderful blog.

Wow! This one took me by surprise. Gorgeous, rich, beautiful colors! Thanks for the nice feature, Barb.

Oh wow. Definitely one of the most memorable snowflakes. Beautiful. Thanks for this feature, Barbara and Robin. Barbara, I love your questions -- always. Looking forward to the books she'll both write and illustrate, too!

Believe me when I tell you that as beautiful as Robin's snowflake looks in the photograph...the picture doesn't do it justice. It really is a work of art. I love "A Log's Life." The illustrations in that book are truly exquisite. Both Robin and Giles Laroche create amazing things with cut paper!

This is astonishing and beautiful. I think my mom would like this one. I love your question to ten-year-old Robin. All the seeds were there, weren't they?

Robin has an uncanny ability to help children make beautiful recreations of natural habitats. They are awestruck by her originals but then her calm manner and clear directions give kids confidence to create their own contributions to a community mural! JAZ

I met Robin yesterday at a reception for some of the Robert's Snow artists at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, Massachusetts. She showed me some of her original illustrations. They are so beautiful!
