Get Painted!

Okay, first read Art and Max, and THEN break out the brushes. This perfect combination of vibrant colors and expressive lizards has an unexpected and ingenious plot twist. Set against a drab desert backdrop, Art and Max's paint-splattered antics will encourage children to take up brushes and use their own imaginations.

Holding a paintbrush will help your preschooler with the fine motor skills necessary for writing and having him/her tell you a story about each masterpiece will develop important narrative skills.

Just make sure you've got a drop cloth down before you let your young Picassos loose after this glimpse into David Wiesner's world!
