Weekly Reading Fave: Art Dog by Thacher Hurd #kidlit
For the past week my son (4) has been absolutely enthralled with Art Dog! We purchased this book at a mega awesome used book sale recently, but didn't read it right away. After the initial reading, I have found my son in his room at least a handful of times, "reading" to himself, having memorized much of the story. He even offered to "read" it to his younger sister.
The story has a fun, humorous feel and the art is so bright and captivating. Things I appreciated about this book: a museum featured in a kid's book, and the ironic names of artists in the book, such as Henry Muttisse. This will definitely be a favorite for a long time. We highly recommend it. Be sure to stop by next week for an art themed reading list!
