Two illustrations from Christoph Niemann’s illustrated children’s book titled Words. Christoph says “I am inviting kids (and readers of all ages) to intuit and puzzle out meaning, and to see language as a source of ideas and stories.” Is that a bunch of hooey to justify a pet project? I don’t think so. I have to admit, the juxtaposition of these two illustrations definitely had me pondering how a young child just learning to read might process this page spread. There’s an extra layer of interest to me as a skateboarder, being able to recall my first skateboard and how very fond of it I was at a young age, separation anxiety and all.
