As you will know if you are frequent visitors to Hex Mum Plus 1, the children are HUGE book fans, we have numerous bookcases around the house, full to the brim with everything from picture books to large encyclopedias (yes we don’t always use google!)
The girls are all keen artists and you can find at least one of them with a sketch book in hand most evenings.
Today I would like to introduce you to Birds and Other Animals Picasso Book, it has jus
A groundbreaking study of animals as captured in rarely seen sketches by legendary artist Pablo Picasso
The masterful drawings of Pablo Picasso are used to teach animal recognition in this artful, read-aloud board book. Birds & Other Animals takes children through Picasso’s series of single-line animal drawings, beginning and ending with various kinds of birds. The cleverly whimsical charm of Picasso’s sketches keeps readers engaged, while the accompanying text enriches the experience with conversational commentary. Readers will not only broaden their visual definitions of which animals are which, but also grow familiar with fine art in this relevant and relatable third title in the ‘First Concepts with Fine Artists’ series. Includes a read-aloud ‘about the artist’.
Looking at some of these, even I may be able to give them a go and be actual recognisable animals!
