Book Sharing Monday:The Art Book for Children

The Art Book for Children 1
The Art Book for Children 2

We bought these books when Defne was about one year old. I think it is important that children see paintings from  a young age even if they don't quite "understand" them. Both books feature a variety of genres and artists. Can dressing up be art? How Do you paint feelings? Can you paint a noise? Such questions throughout the books stimulates children's  creativity and imagination. Sometimes we look at the pictures and talk about them and sometimes Defne likes to "read" this book independently.
