Breakfasters: How a Talking Heads Song Inspired Tai Snaith’s Latest Kids Book

Tai Snaith is an artist, author, curator and fortnightly visual arts presenter on SmartArts. She was also recently short-listed in the World Illustration awards (in case you weren’t already sufficiently impressed). The latest from Tai? A book for kids: You Might Find Yourself. ‘The pictures look very 3D,’ Tai observes, ‘and often when little kids see them, they grab at the page.’ (Sarah admits she did that, too.) The text is inspired by the Talking Heads song ‘Once in a Lifetime’; the only constant is the path, which becomes ‘an analogy for life’. Tai also shares some handy hints for reading to little ones.
