Post from Danielle Carnito, Sr. Art Director, Trade
Some of my favorite things intersected recently:
- Making Books
- Art & Design
- The Olympic Peninsula
How so, you might ask. Let me tell you!
There are many ways young readers can change the world. They can help animals, create imaginative art, and be an upstander against racism. This fall, Sesame Street® brings young readers together with new activities, new characters, and new places. Read on to discover this season’s titles and the online resources that will encourage young readers to continue learning!
Beyond: Discoveries from the Outer Reaches of Space takes readers on a profound journey beyond our solar system and explores the marvels of interstellar space. A wonder-filled poem and spectacular illustrations explore everything from dwarf planets and black holes to dark matter and brand-new stars.
Today author Miranda Paul joins us to discuss her inspiration for Beyond, the picture book’s unique format, and her favorite celestial body!
In April 2019, editorial director Carol Hinz and art director Danielle Carnito traveled to Oklahoma to gather information related to several books they were working on. One of them was Unspeakable: The Tulsa Race Massacre by Carole Boston Weatherford, illustrated by Floyd Cooper, which will release on February 2, 2021. We asked Carol and Danielle to share a little about how their trip shaped their work on this book.

I’m endlessly fascinated by how illustrators create artwork for picture books. It’s not so much the technical details that I find compelling; it’s the process of determining what image will best accompany a given word or phrase or paragraph on a page.
