Eric Carle, of Very Hungry Caterpillar fame, has a lovely new picture book out for toddlers to four year olds.
It is called The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, and it encourages children to explore artistic freedom and break through the shackles of conventional colouring-in! Definitely something we should all aspire to do!
This gorgeous, large-size hardback is full of illustrations of favourite animals in not-so-conventional colours. Along with the horse who is very blue, you’ll find a bright green lion, a purple fox, and even a polka-dotted donkey! As we have come to expect from Carle’s books, the pictures are extremely engaging and will inspire your little ones to reach out and touch the vivid images in front of them. Come and have a look for yourself!!
