My book bag

Every time I travel I bring lots of books.  I really need to invest in a nook or a kindle to save my back.  I just went to Miami with my husband for a work convention and I decided to extend my layover in Michigan to visit my friend for a couple days.  I am missing my 3 boys terribly but I am having a blast.  I thought you might be interested to know what books I brought in my bag for this trip in preparation for my class.  These are the books I am loving this week!  I wish I could tell you more about each one but the shopping outlets are calling my name.  I love each one of these books.


  1. Thanks for the recommendations - I'm always looking for projects to do with my daughter.

    I am planning on following along with your online artclass and I just posted about it on my blog (www.pursuitofpoppy.com). We're really looking forward to it!

  2. I can believe I just found you blog! can wait to follow your class with my kiddo! I love what you do!

  3. awesome! that 'getting to know' series looks fabulous - just put some on hold at my library.

  4. those are some great books I use this one for my youngest who is 4 right now: Art for the Very Young.

    use Hooked on Art for both my girls

    Will be looking into a few of those for sure.

    new blog follower so glad I found your blog

  5. The Eileen Prince book was the first art book that I read, I know it is more for a classroom setting but I picked it up at the library and read it. It was the first I heard of the "coloring book debate".

    All of the rest of the books you mentioned look interesting!
