Book 504: 101 Dalmatians

101 Dalmatians, Disney, Bendon, 2013

For a few months my then six-year-old son was on a 101 Dalmatians kick.  He found this book in a thrift store, so we bought it.  And he loved it -- until we read the original story.

This book is a good introduction to the story of the 101 Dalmatians, but don't miss the original book by Dodie Smith.

Book 503: Come Look With Me -- Exploring Landscape Art with Children

Exploring Landscape Art with Children, by Gladys S. Blizzard, Charlesbridge, 1996.

We used this book for my son's first grade Art class.  He loved all the beautiful pieces of Art, and the landscapes chosen were a good representation of different styles of Art.
