Classic books are the staples of a home library, but how about stocking up on a few whimsical reads? Here are some creativity inspiring page turners.
When Pigasso Met Mootisse Arguably, one of my favorite books of all time, Nina Laden's homage to Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, two of the greatest painters that ever existed, is a must read. It explores the friendship and feud of Pigasso, a pig and Mootisse, a bull. My son and daughter enjoy the book's colorful images and witty puns almost as much as I do.
Art Dog by Thatcher Hurd is the story of Arthur Dog, a guard at the Dogopolis Museum by day and masked creator of mural masterpieces by night. This book introduces kids to famous artists in a fun way.
Mini Masters Board Book Set If you're tired of the same old animal board books, these 6 x 6 inch books featuring the works of Degas, Matisse, Monet and Van Gough are a nice alternative. Even better, they come in a lil cardboard carrying case.
