This month's writer Tomie de Paola was a new to me writer and we have enjoyed learming about him and his books.
He is not well known in the UK,our library doesn't have any of his books so it was somewhat difficult for me to choose a book.And he has many! I ended up with buying The Art Lesson.
Defne (5yo) enjoyed the book. She always tells me she is going to be an artist or a ballerina. I asked her if she wants to draw a picture of herself. She was very eager and wanted to use the special paints (the acryclic paints). She wanted to use a pallette just like a real artist.
