About the Author

Illustrator, author and visual artist Émilie Vast plays with pure lines, solid color and contrast. Inspired by the graphic arts of the past, in love with nature, she stages plants and animals, like so many characters coming to tell their stories in stylized illustrations, sweet and poetic. Émilie lives and works in Reims, in the north of France.


Looking back at Baby's lineage, Mother describes how long, long, long, long ago, the mother of the mother of the mother of her mom welcomed to the family the mother of the mother of her mom. And so it goes, tracing Baby's ancestors through to the present day. Russian nesting dolls (matryoshka) illustrated on each spread get smaller with each turn. Each is a different color, decorated with animals, flowers, and other nature-based items. A superbly crafted board book for children ages 2 to 6, "From Mother to Mother" is an especially and unreservedly recommended addition to family, daycare center, preschool, kindergarten, and community library children's board book collections.
