If you are self-publishing, keep in mind that children's book illustrators are responsible for visually enhancing your story - and ultimately their graphics will "sell" your book. If the cover and interior illustrations don’t visually attract the child or parent, the book remains unread!
That said, our listing of childrens illustrators is only a small sampling of the available talent - and it is not an endorsement of those listed, but rather an informational listing - or at least a place to start.
