Colors!

This week kindergarten and first grade will be reading these colorful stories, most of which were recommended purchases from none other than our own amazing art teacher, Ms. Kniffin!  Books about concepts like colors, shapes, the alphabet and numbers are always a big hit with the younger students, and with covers like these, I’m sure you can see why!

  

These stories are more than just fun experiments with color; there are much bigger ideas at play here.  Monsters Love Colors takes the traditional primary colors instruction and makes it a whole lot of fun!  Sky Color celebrates the artist inside of everyone, especially those who see the world in an unexpected way.  Drawn Together is an amazing multi-generational story of how art can bring families together, with illustrations by Dan Santat that are mind-bogglingly gorgeous. And Pocket Full of Colors, the true story of Mary Blair, Disney artist extraordinaire, who thought outside the box in both her life and her art, is a picture book biography all young artists should read!

These gorgeous books are going to be a BIG hit!
