Thoughts

My kids were gifted this book by their auntie and uncle for Christmas. Not sure it is me or the kids who love this book more. This book contain real paintings (reprinted) from artists. It is a fantastic introduction for children to learn about the paintings and the artist. Lots of room for discussion based on the piece of art and a wonderful prompt to inspire children to create their own art piece inspired by many of the prospective themes: animals in art, verbs/adjectives/nouns and different art mediums . Any family that appreciates art, would love this book.
