You can share beautiful art with your children every day by reading picture books.
I love books.
And having a toddler means that I can enjoy picture books all over again. Some I choose (since I’m still doing a lot of the choosing) for the stories, some for the illustrations, and some for both.
There are many wonderful artists out there illustrating books for children and we can see their art on a regular basis for the small price of a book or with our library card.
Here are a few of our favorites…
