Life is Like a Big Canvas
by Chloe McGenn
About the Book
This book is a collection of paintings and mixed media canvases by Chloe McGenn. Each double page has a picture, a word describing the picture, and 'activities' for the child to do either by themselves or with an adult.
The book aims to promote talking about pictures with children, as well as learning to read words. There are also useful facts about any animals featured, counting and colour information, as well as whimsical details such as information about the subjects of the picture. Questions are also asked about what the child thinks about the picture - what is the woman's name, which cake would you eat, etc.
Originally printed for Joel's first birthday, but available to everyone.
