Woo-hoo! It’s the end of my impromptu-theme of art books for children. To end it, I thought it might be useful to collate a few more suggestions of art books for kids / further resources- I know this is something that I want to come back to in the future, and I thought it might be useful for anyone who wanted to do some more research in the area. I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface ….!
21 Picture books about art (I love the sound of the touch & feel one about the Mona Lisa!)
Exploring the great artists – 20+ art books for kids (Features the lovely Katie books here – these are very worth a look). From the same blog, I also enjoyed their piece on arts/crafts – ‘Exploring the Great Artists’)

I love what Zoe over at “Playing by the book” does with her blog posts – she combines her book reviews with amazing projects on arts, crafts, books, cake … pretty much anything you can think. It’s a constant inspiration (and also a constant joy). Also you need to read this post for an amazing list of artwork in children’s books – “‘The interactive Art book plus 90+ publicly displayed masterpieces of art which feature in children’s books. “
Also – here’s a picture book I reviewed earlier. “Dogs’ Night” by Meredith Hooper.
Let me know if there’s anything amazing that I’ve missed?
