Aaron Slater's Big Project Book for Astonishing Artists (Questioneers Activity)
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Series: Questioneers

An inspiring, hands-on book about art, creativity, and how we see the world--featuring the newest Questioneer, Aaron Slater!

Make art of all sorts in this project book from the team behind the bestselling Questioneers series. Aaron Slater shows readers how art is everywhere in our world--from the famous paintings and photographs that we know so well to places you may not think as much about, like on stamps or coins--and encourages them to make art of their own based on what they see.

Activities will help to spark creativity, encourage curiosity, and show some of the traits most important to being an artist: being observant, being persistent, and being flexible.

From coloring pages to drawing prompts to instructions on how to make your very own puppet show and so much more, this project book encourages and uplifts the youngest artists and the creators of tomorrow.

Gr 1-3--This volume covers a lot with fewer than 100 pages: art history, art method, art instruction, and art-making, all while presenting an inclusive and diverse story of art and artists across time. It's great! After sharing Aaron's story of learning to illustrate while reading with his dyslexia--a story readers can take in more fully in Aaron Slater, Illustrator--the book introduces its big project: Art! Text and illustrations create complex pages packed with information and instruction. While making art is a major theme of the book, there are also pages dedicated to enjoying art, too, e.g., "Being a good audience member," and "The viewer interprets the art." VERDICT What an empowering way to frame art for children; not only can they make it, but they learn how to be absorbed by it and talk about it, too.--Jessica Schriver
