Ages 3-6

A boy named Art loves making art: squiggles and scribbles, splotches and blotches, doodles of houses and trees, stars and the moon. Author/illustrator Patrick McDonnell uses blue, yellow, red, and black to draw both Art and his art in simple, subdued line drawings accompanying the playful, rhyming text. An explosive double-page spread shows Art’s lively imagination at work in his dreams—a bright, childlike picture that incorporates all of the doodles and drawings that Art has been making. When Art wakes up (making art is exhausting) his pre-nap art is hanging in the premier display space found in every home: the refrigerator.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
