Title: Louise Loves Art
Written and illustrated by: Kelly Light
For Ages: 3-7
Opening: I love art! It's my imagination on the outside.
Brief summary: Kelly decides to create an art show with her "piece de resistance" as the spotlight. Her little brother Art adores her and she adores him. This is their story
Why I love this book: This book reminds me so much of my own childhood. I used to get huge thick stacks of white paper and just draw and draw and draw. I love all the characters in this book, including the cat. It is a joy to read, and my 3 year old son loves it too! Immediately after reading it he wanted me to draw a picture of a cat.
