Probably my favorite chilren's book author is Else Beskow. Part of it is her stories are sweet, very inncoent and full of charm, but her illustrations are also so beautiful that I could look at them again and again all day long. (which is what one has to do with the books one owns and is demanded to read at any moment of the day. )
Anyway I recommend her books highly. I haven't read them all and there may be a weird one in the bunch but they are simply fabulous. They run a bit expensive so I try not save up and buy them one at a time or ask my mom for them for gifts for the girls. I have also found them on Amazon for cheaper.
Okay and while searching for else beskow pics on the web I found this lady's really neat house in maine. I probably drooled over these pictures too long. My favorite is the baby sleeping by the hearth on the sheepskin. Sorry the URL is so long. (sigh) I still have to figure out how to link to something the cool way. ( By the way make sure you find the link on her page to "IN MY HOME". . . . )
