Review quote

...[I] have fallen in l.o.v.e. with the series of art books for kids by Herve Tullet. The latest book, the big book of art, is perhaps my favorite. As the name indicates it's a huge book with heavy printed pages that flip in different sections to create delightful compositions. This is perfect for pre-schoolers who are just getting the hang of drawing... Coos and Ahhsshow more

Beautiful. And it contains lots of mix and match opportunities. Great as an art inspiring more
