I spend more time in the children's wing of my library than I do anywhere else. It's right by the entrance. There's a shelf of new books, themed books and other goodies there to tempt me. I know I could use the excuse that I'm only looking for books for my children but that would be flat out lie.

Take for example: Pass It Down: Five Picture Book Families Make Their Mark by Leonard S. Marcus. I saw that book on the nonfiction shelf and had to check it out. Not for my children but for myself.

The book highlights five families of picture book authors and illustrators: Crews, Hurd, Myers, Pinkney and Rockwell. There is a short biography for each author or illustrator, along with photographs and samples of their artwork.

The book is a little longer than a typical picture book. The intended audience is probably the children who are currently reading their books but I wanted more.
