Story Books for the Elementary Art Room

With a broken ankle, I will not be returning to the classroom anytime soon but for the teachers out there Mrs Picasso's Art Blog has an excellent list of  art books that you should have in your collection. Click here for the list. One book she doesn't have is Melanie Watt's Leon the Chameleon. Leon is a chameleon who does not camouflage. In fact, he turns a different colour than his peers. It makes him feel different until he uses his colour to save the day. I use this book to talk about feelings of being different. Its a great introduction to complementary colours. See my previous post.

And since I am writing about back to school, Kathy Babro of Art Project for Kids has a list of her favourite art supplies. Click here.
