Puns but nicely done. ( )

Another favorite! The forms of art presented in the book, as well as the main character named Art as well was perfect. The different colors of paint, and shapes, and lines that art used in his art was visually spectacular. Then, close to the end, you can see his pieces put together beautifully in his dream while he napped on an art piece of his. This book was different, inventive, highly engaging, and I can definitely see it being a favorite for many children. ( )

Art is about a little boy named Art who loves to draw. He paints, scribbles, and blotches all over the white pages. He has a creative mind and his imaginations are painted everywhere. What I liked most about this book is that it shows art does not have to be perfect. Drawing and painting can be messy. There is not one way to draw that is correct or wrong. This book would be a great read aloud to my kindergarten class and can be followed up with an art activity. ( )

Picture book that each page has inspirational messages about creativity and drawing.

This is a delightful story about Art, who loves to make art. The interplay between words and illustrations is such a treat.
