The Crib that Took a Trip


The Crib that Took a Trip is about a young child who is getting a new big-kid bed, but is a little sad to see the trusty crib go away. But, once the child finds out the trip the crib gets to go on now that its out of the bedroom, it make the child feel better about taking that next step. 


Using vibrant watercolor paintings, I wanted the energy and excitement of all the different destinations to come to life. From the deep, cold blues of the arctic to the warm sunset of Africa, each captures a little different part of the world.
