The Big Book of Art
This fantastic book is an interactive, abstract, visual adventure inviting the reader to explore their own ideas of art through mixing and matching different colors, patterns, shapes and lines. With the exception of a few whole pages scattered throughout, this book is made up of half pages allowing the reader to arrange and rearrange designs in a multitude of interesting ways. Some of the patterns are recognizable such as flowers or fish. Others are quite abstract such as blobs of color or squiggly lines. There is also a section on the alphabet which encourages children to visually play with recognizing letters both in whole and in part. This is a book that celebrates creativity and imagination. It is a wonderful way to introduce children to art and will hopefully inspire children to make some art of their own.
