Kid Artist: True Tales of Childhood from Creative Legends by David Stabler is a fun nonfiction book! It’s perfect for middle school age, but can be enjoyable to older readers. The book shares childhood stories of famous artists.
The book is divided into three sections and within each section the artists have similarities. I loved the illustrations by Doogie Horner, it really brought the stories to life. I knew about most of the featured artists, but I was not aware of all. I enjoyed learning about the artists childhood. The facts are all very intriguing This is a great book to learn about these amazing artists. It shows how other people went about learning to paint, draw, sculpt, and more and it could really inspire kids to try their hand at what they are interested in!
I received this book from Quirk Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
