The Artful Parent Book by Jean Van't Hul 300px I’m so excited! I just learned from my editor that The Artful Parent book was named one of the Best Books of the Year So Far by Amazon.

It’s number 10 on their “Best of” list for Crafts, Hobbies, & Home.

Just had to share!

    Congrats! I recently read through cover to cover and had done a number of the projects along the way. We’re using it as our homeschool ‘art’ in the year :)

    Congratulations! I gave your book to my daughter’s preschool teachers as an end of the year gift (they were always asking me for art project advice). Even though it’s meant for the home, I think it’s still an awesome resource for a classroom as well. So happy for you!!

    Well done! We have it and we love it. In fact just about to do somethings out of it in 5 mins. I have a 5yrd old and a 3 yr old and there are lots of activities that are suited to the both of them.
    congrats from Australia.
