7 Favorite Children’s Books about Art

Our list of favorite art-themed books for kids

By Kayla Rochelle March 9, 2021

Our home is full of art lovers. From the moment my daughter picked up a toddler crayon she was hooked on creating every chance she got. It’s important to me to not only stock our art supply cabinet with items that can encourage her creativity but also have our bookshelves encourage it as well. Here are some books we have been reading and loving for years that are perfect for your little artist.
