Happy Tuesday! This is the first installment of book suggestions for children. A Facebook follower of mine asked me for book suggestions about artwork that she could share with her children. I thought it was an excellent idea to share with everyone and am planning to create a post each week filled with book ideas about a particular art subject.
These are a few books that I like that take a closer look at actual works of art.
You can probably check out most of these books from your local library. Otherwise, I purchase most of my books online at Amazon.
