Art and literature are essential components of a child's education that encourage creativity, self-expression, and abstract, critical thinking. These skills, in turn, help a child excel in math, science, reading, and drama. However, traditional educational settings often destroy a child's innate self-esteem and creativity. Art and Children is an indispensable aid to educators and librarians interested in helping young children achieve their artistic and creative potential. This teaching aid provides thematic, unit-based activities that use art and literature to develop skills such as interpretation, self-expression, critical thinking, experiential learning, and problem solving. Accompanied by numerous examples, it offers step-by-step suggestions on how to plan, implement, and present these units and their related activities. Addresses of art suppliers are also provided.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...a delightful approach to art with and through books. This book was written by a youth services librarian, but will also appeal to both parents and teachers. * The School Librarian *
How refreshing it is to find a book by a school librarian who writes about literature as a focus to stimulate creativity...Much of what she suggests is through outlines, bibliographies and source lists. * Arts and Activities *
Anyone interested in developing a literature-based arts programme would find this book a good starting point. * Grace Mccarthy *
