This study of the author's two children illuminates the way they learned to recognize illustration' styles from picture books. Before they were five they could name the illustrators of picture books and recognize the same characters in different stories and different characters by the same illustrator. They were able to compare illustrators, recognize different illustrators of the same text, point out where illustrators made mistakes and contrast illustrations with their own drawings.
