Ann Jonas, Award Winning Children's Book Creator Dies

Ann Jonas, Award-Winning Children’s Book Creator, Dies at 81


Jonas once said of her work, “I’ve been trying to explore other ways of stretching children’s imaginations. I find myself drawn more and more often to designing books that involve some sort of visual play. It seems like a wonderful opportunity to encourage children to look at familiar things in different ways while offering the appeal of a game or a puzzle.”
