this lady went to art school. so naturally when i became a mom i was sure i was going to be getting artsy and crafty with my kids on the daily. enter reality. art projects are fun, but a huge mess, and in our little apartment, i am like the marlboro man trying to corral the finger painted and magic marker totting tots!
that is why i have fallen in l.o.v.e. with the series of art books for kids by hervé tullet. the latest book, the big book of art, is perhaps my favorite. as the name indicates it's a huge book with heavy printed pages that flip in different sections to create delightful compositions. this is perfect for preschoolers who are just getting the hang of drawing--mine is still in the early stages, but he adores this book. all the art without all the mess! learn more about the book and author and buy it at books to coo about.
