Some Pages That Jumped Out to Me:
Mica would LOVE to visit this book temple! Who wouldn't? It's so cool! When I was in grad school in Savannah, GA they had books that were pillars that held up their bookstore. I thought it was so cool. Having a whole temple made of books is beyond cool!
I loved the double page spread about pop culture. Images made with junk, and brightly colored. Isaak I know would love this. It's a movement inspired by artist Roy Lichtenstein.
The Asaro Mud Men are fun. They are from Papua New Guinea's eastern highlands are known for their ghoulish clay masks adorned with pigs' teeth and shells. Considering the fact that Isaak couldn't get enough mud on his body at camp this summer, I think he'd like this story.
Silvesterklaus is a masked person taking part in Saint Sylvester's Day festivities in Appenzell, Switzerland. I've always been drawn to masks. These are traditions, but also art pieces in my mind.
We have a Windmill Park in Nebraska, but it looks nothing like the image below. The Windmill Park below is colorful, and fun!
Hairplay is so interesting. This artist does all kinds of fun things with their hair. They make their hair look like shadows, trees, reflections, and more.
The living ghosts of Benin walk around with body guards. If you have contact with them, you could die. Yikes! They are interesting, and unlike anything I'd heard of before.
