"Think Big" is one of the newest picture books that
I've been working on with Bloomsbury Books.
Award winning writer Liz Garton Scanlon is the amazing
author of the book. Liz encourages kids and parents to
of course, "Think Big", but about what? About art of course!!
The arts are slowly disappearing from our schools.
It's so important that we get our kids making all kinds of art.
Through dance, paint, music and yes even food. Come along
as Liz and I take you and your kid on a wonderful journey
through the arts! Due in store in early July 2012.

Janine said...

Oh this is wonderful, and you are so right. It is a shame that art dissapears fromthe schools. It´s the same in germany. And isn´t art at least as important as mathematics and language?
For a happy life it is!!!
Have a great weekend
