Check out this great video of Ibi working with kids to make the Scholastic published grand prize winning book "Ibi's Fireflies"
There are three books out about Ibiyinka's art
Ibi's Fireflies was illustrated, written and presented to Scholastic by the Ink-Readable Club of Willow Lane Elementary School in Macungie, Pennsylvania after Ibiyinka visited their school to share his artwork and story with them. Information about sale locations will be posted as they become available.

ETERNITY IN OUR HEARTS is named after my painting with this title and is my first published book. It was published in April 2009 and is written in two parts. The first part comprises poetry and a story about how fireflies become stars in our memories. The second part contains my written interpretations for artworks like "True Miracles" and "Grace", which I often share with audiences in schools, museums, and various other venues. It contains many images of my paintings
The Food and Agricultural Organization(FAO) of the United Nations used many of Ibiyinka's artworks for their publication "Indigenous and Tribal Peoples: Building on Biological and Cultural Diversity for Food and Livelihood Security. This piece celebrates sustainability as evidenced by the Orange fruit that is found in abundance in the artist's hometown.
Prints of Painting are Ibiyinka's vehicle for making his stories affordable and available around the world
