HOWEVER, since this book makes no claims to be original children's art, I can love this book unconditionally. I read through it and I have to say that the book is beautiful. It echoes children's art, the freedom and joy of movement even though it's drawn by a seasoned artist. In this way does Mcdonnell celebrate children's art even if he cannot recreate it. The world created in the book is as whimsical as any story I've watched pre-K kids create. The narration is beautiful.
I love this book and have added it to my personal collection.
Art, a little boy, creates his art freely and with creative flare in Art. Art draws lines in the form of zigs and zags, scribbles that squiggle and dots in many colors and sizes. He plops splotches and blotches on the page, then with a flourish creates the curliest cue.
His inspiration is the paper and his mind and from there he doodles and creates his masterpieces. Exhausted he falls fast asleep and when he awakens, all those masterpieces have been carefully hung on the refrigerator by his mother.
Armchair Interviews says: Art is a delightful character that exudes personality and comes alive as he madly creates his art. Children will love the book Art.
