Hott Review

What I liked: Impressive. This book, of course, contained the wonderful rhyming of Julia Dweck but in addition to that there was so much more. The illustrations are really a work of art that adults and children alike can appreciate. There is an interactive touch to the pages that teach all of us just a bit more about some of the most famous paintings and artists. It’s really quite amazing how much they were able to fit into this tiny book.
