What We’re Reading in the Art Room

To celebrate World Read Aloud Day this Wednesday March 9, here are some of the books that we’ve enjoyed recently in the art room!

My first graders LOVE Pout Pout Fish – the illustrations are awesome and the story is sooo cute.


Another fun book we’ve enjoyed is What Will Fat Cat Sit On? Just a goofy story but the cartoony animal drawings are really great.

My kiddos also enjoy books about the artists that we are studying.   Three we’ve just finished:

Action Jackson – all about Jackson Pollock; My Name is Georgia, about Georgia O’Keeffe, and a new one to the art room, Sandy’s Circus – about Alexander Calder.

And what does Mrs. Brouwer read in her spare time?  Here are two of my favorites – about artists, of course!

Luncheon of the Boating Party, a great read about Renoir and his life in France; and Vermeer – Girl With A Pearl Earring.
