An Artist's Eyes by Frances Tosdevin

informative inspiring reflective slow-paced


Jo is a little boy off for a walk with Mo, who is an artist. And while Mo sees things a certain way, Jo doesn't see them the same way. This upsets him, because he too wants to see like an artist. In the end though, they realize that art isn't one size fits all, and they can see things differently, and both see things like artists.

As one would hope in a book about art, this is gorgeously illustrated. In fact, there were multiple pages that I would want to take out and hang on my walls, they were so pretty! As an artist myself, I didn't like how the beginning of the book started off with the idea that there's only one way to see/do art, because every artist is so different! But the book does eventually get there, so I guess it's okay. A beautiful book for any budding artists, although I would probably say this one is for slightly older kiddos. I feel that the concepts are better for early elementary age instead of preschool age kids. 4.25 stars from me!

I was provided an ARC copy of this book through Netgalley. My thanks to the publisher and the author for providing it to me.
