    Comments by author, MaryAnn F. Kohl

    Based on the show of support for Discovering Great Artists, I decided that a book to enhance chidlrden's love of reading picture books might be a nice follow up! 100 children's book illustrators are featured with a little history on each one, their birthdays, and their 'portrait'. Each illustrator and a famous book by that illustrator has a matching kids' easy art project to go with the book. For example: 'Blueberries for Sal' by Robert Mccloskey, the children actually paint with blueberries or can make blue fingerdot paintings; 'Strega Nona' by Tomie dePaola, create with glue and dry pasta noodles to build a sculpture; 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak, the children experiment with Sendak's style of 'cross hatching' to create shading. All of the projects are easy and use common materials, with great results. Browse through the book's pages at my website: www.brightring.com I think this book will motivate kids to look more closely at the illustrations and to enjoy creating their own artworks. But most of all, it will encourage kids to read and enjoy books. HOORAY.

    Literacy Enhanced Through Art

    This book helps kids appreciate the art they see in their picture books, and to look more carefully at the details...because they will try the same techniques or styles...and come back loving and appreciating their books even more.
