Look! by Kyra Teis

http://www.kyrateis.com/_wp_generated/wp28bf3907.jpg

Joan and I have given our responses to board books featuring representational fine art, so how about one full of abstract art? Look! by Kyra Teis fills this nitch!

Inspired by her father's abstract art, Kyra brings a collection of painted paper collages to your totz. Like a quilt, the shapes, colors, and textures weave across the page.



The straightforward text will inspire your totz to discover forms, direction, and repetitions.

"Squiggle, squiggle,
can you see the lines that wiggle?"

And you can't overlook the blurb of awesome on the back cover:

"It is a great pleasure to welcome Kyra Teis, a gifted young artist, to the world of children's picture books. Her sense of design, and especially color, is magical and will inspire young children to explore their own creative ability." Brian Wildsmith

Reading this work will brighten your day. Filled with so many beautiful colors and shapes, how can it not? Take a look at Look!

Look!

旁觀自己的悲傷是解脫,主觀自己的悲傷是更加悲傷..............................

This looks really interesting. I think Jean at The Artful Parent might really enjoy it so I'm off to let her know about it.
