The MONIQUE LHUILLIER
POTTERY BARN KIDS is at it again with its latest collaboration with designer MONIQUE LHUILLIER . Mostly known for her to-die-for wedding
dresses as well as tabletop decor and fine jewelry, she has teamed with the home furnishing retailer to “bring a sense of calm to the energetic lifestyles parents and kids lead,” she says. “As a parent, I believe it’s important to create a space that reflects your child’s personality and inspires creativity.” With everything from poufs to toy ponies for the bedroom and playroom, the 70-piece collection “marries the functionality needed for baby and kids’ spaces with contemporary, whimsical, and magical design.” 110 S.

Keep your little ones looking cute with the new spring 2016 collection by local designer Kelsy Hodge’s BROWN SUGAR BEACH , etsy.com/shop.bsugarb. We love the floral rompers for girls, and little boys will go crazy for the camo clothes. Likewise, Sofia Melograno’s eco-conscious BERU KIDS , berukids.com, uses surplus fabrics—scraps and remnants—to create dresses, leggings, Ts, and more for boys and girls. Plus, a portion of the proceeds are donated to charities that focus on children’s education. G . Z . T .
A day at the zoo doesn’t have to end when the gates close. Artist Tom Mielko and poet Erin Graffy’s charmingly crafted ANIMALIA: PORTRAITS IN POETRY AND PENCIL (Kieran Publishing, 2015, $18, available at Chaucer’s Bookstore, 805-6826787, chaucersbooks.com), features 23 animal portraits in true-to-life pencil sketches alongside Graffy’s delightfully whimsical poetry. In the vein of children’s horse-themed classics (Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty comes to mind), THE EXTRAORDINARY PONY (Lucky Penny Press, 2015, $14.95, available at amazon.com) is a coming-ofage tale of one young pony’s rocky journey to greatness. Themes of love and selfconfidence are illustrated through the vibrant paintings of first-time author and Santa Ynez-based artist Alana Clumeck. Inspired by her battle with prenatal depression, Clumeck seeks to share the therapeutic aspect of art with children and adults alike. One dollar of each copy sold benefits the Bal Suraksha Abhiyan Trust, which promotes the human rights of children in India. M A D E L E I N E L E E
