Books! (Arabic Quilt, Egyptian)

I was really getting inspired by this book because of the artwork and story about an Egyptian family that had moved to the US (as I have many students who would relate to this book)….and then I realized the author is from Toledo, Ohio! Small world! #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidsreading #artroomliteracy #bookstagram #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #monalisaandmore #kidsbookrecommendations #artteachersofinstagram #bookstagram #books #read

Books!

A book about taking care of what you have (a great intro into taking care of the supplies in the art room.) Also interesting is that this story is based on the childhood of the author and talks about growing up in an igloo community. #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidsreading #artroomliteracy #bookstagram #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #monalisaandmore #kidsbookrecommendations #artteachersofinstagram #bookstagram #books #read

Books! (Art Museum Etiquette, Fine Art Paintings)

This book details some art museum etiquette, but also shows plenty of fine art examples with author/painting titles in the back of the book. 👍🏼 #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidsreading #artroomliteracy #bookstagram #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #monalisaandmore #kidsbookrecommendations #artteachersofinstagram #bookstagram #books #read #artlessonideas #artmuseum

Books! (Faith Ringold)

Just had this project memory pop up on fb! May need to revisit it with 1st grade. We read Tar Beach by Faith Ringgold and looked at her artwork. Shaving cream marbling in background, paint chip skyscrapers, and moveable self-portraits flying over the city….love! #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #artroomliteracy #bookstagram #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #monalisaandmore #kidsbookrecommendations #artteachersofinstagram #bookstagram #books #read #artlessonideas #faithringgold #artteacher #artteachersofig

Books! (Art/Counselor Collaborations)

A good art teacher/school counselor collaboration could be formed from this book! I like the use of different cape colors to show off how Manny deals with different situations, but the most important one is his invisible cape that he uses at school.
