Book Review - If You Are an Artist

If You Are an Artist

And most importantly, you know that the world is waiting for what YOU and only YOU can create. Because YOU are an artist.

Meg Auchenbach has been writing and illustrating books since she was a little girl. If You Are an Artist is her debut picture book and is inspired by her former career as an elementary art teacher, where she watched children daydream, experiment, and create. She holds a B.F.A. in painting from Arcadia University, and an M.F.A. in Illustration/Visual Communication from Marywood University. She lives in Eastern Pennsylvania with her husband, two children, and their dog and cat. 

My Take on the Book

This was a beautiful book that really is a story that needs to be told to our kids over and over again. Each one of our kids are artists in their own way and we do need to encourage this and this book does just that. I love the images throughout and the creative use of words and images that allow you to see the importance of creativity in our children's lives. I highly recommend this book to all!
