Book Review: The Art Lesson

We try to read a book every morning when Elle wakes up and at least one more during the day. Her attention span is not much better than mine, so we usually stick to short books with attractive pictures.

Today we read The Art Lesson by Tomie dePaola. It was a very sweet book and had a childish auto biographical feel to it. I can't wait to teach Elle about auto biographies and other genres of literature. This is a good first step to talk about it.

The story is about a young Tommy who wants to be an artist even before he starts kindergarten. It is a sweet book about following a passion. I hope that I remember the lessons from this book and let Elle follow her passions.
