About Illustrator Barbara Szepesi Szucs (in her own words and from her website)

Usually, everybody says that as a child he/she already knew what she/he wanted to become. At the beginning I didn’t see this clear what I wanted to be, because drawing meant to me much more. I did it from dawn to dusk.

I drew when I was standing, sitting, eating. I was scrabbling in hundreds of ways, it was a part of my life.

I also learnt to play music and I almost became musician, but in the last moment I chose graphic design, and I said to myself: this will be my way.

I learnt in an art secondary school, then I applied to MOME (Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design – Budapest), where I’ve done my graphic designer degree.

Now I’ am working as an independent graphic designer and illustrator.

My Impressions:

My children are all grown up now (they are 27, 26 and 24 — oh my!), but I remember when they were preschoolers full of energy and ready to go! Getting them to sit still for story time was a challenge. The newest book in the Sing Along series from Zonderkidz, If You’re Happy and You Know It combines the needed release of pent-up wiggles and giggles with a colorful board book with cute illustrations. This book encourages kids to move as it engages a number of senses. My kids loved this song when they were young, and I think your special child will enjoy moving, singing, and reading along with this sturdy board book. Great for the preschool set!
