My favorite read aloud. Ok one of. Because so many.
all Maira Kalman obvi but Max Makes A Million is a good place to start. Spectacular paintings and poetry and no baby talk! Sophisticated enough for a child. — Kat
Grrrrrrr. (from Rebecca)
Oscar winning movie!
Hush and Brush. They invent all the colors in the world. Stunning in every way.
Time to plant a seed in a pot on a windowsill, at least.
Charming story of a farm truck growing older as a little girl grows up. A celebration of hard work, resilience, and imagination in the face of change. — Marni
I think in this trying time ay of the series by Susan Verde would be great. I am Love, I am Yoga, I am Human, I am Mindfulness. They would be good things for kids to learn in these scary times. I will also add that Peter H. Reynolds does all the artwork and his books are just great. His latest, Be You is super inspirational and beautiful at the same time. — Nicole
I also LOVE selling the book Underwear by Jean Harney. It is funny and adorable and a great bath time/bedtime story. — Nicole
