I'm the Greatest Artist in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry
Art & Max by David Weisner
heck, any book by Weisner is pretty cool.
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
before the movie, there was this wonderful book. the movie, for all it's visuals, pales in comparison.
He has a new one out called Wonderstruck. Same visual narrative structure as Hugo.
All 3 of the Knuffle Bunny books by Mo Willems
great combination of life moments with drawing and photography.
too many Mo books to mention. great for beginning readers and adults alike.
Art Lab for Kids by Susan Schwake
52 project ideas. manageable for home or classroom.
from a great series of art project books.
Art by Patrick McDonnell
Pencil by Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman
Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts
I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
so good. and a touch dark.
