Louise Loves Art by Kelly Light
Publisher: Balzer & Bray
Release Date: September 9, 2014
Meet Louise. She loves art more than anything. And she is determined to create a masterpiece—her pièce de résistance!
I will admit, when I picked up this book, I thought the illustrator was the one who did the Bink & Golly books. This is definitely a compliment, because I love this style of illustration. When creating a book about wanna-be artists, it helps when the art within the book is really well-done. Louise and her little brother are adorable and I love that this is so kid-focused. The masterpiece is the masterpiece of a child and the art gallery, the refrigerator. There's a lot going on within each page so I consider this more of a one-on-one lap book, and especially poignant for those with younger siblings.
