 #ONE

 My friend read the book to her 4 and 5 yr  olds.  She said ” The 5 yr old drew his own pictures in the book, changed and added to them.The 4 yr old drew on notebook paper instead. Both boys drew animals which  not painted in the book. The book got all our creative juices going . I didn't know they could draw animals.  I enjoyed the book as much as they did. Each child in the family needs one of  your books. If my younger boy had read it with his big brother he wouldn't have thought of drawing his very own animals.He would have copied his brothers drawings"

         Susan, a poet and a children's librarian wrote

          "Such a fun book. I love the exuberant art, the way it’s an alphabet book, a collection of memoir pieces, a teaching tool for curios young minds and a gallery of joyful and playful art in one book. Your art and work is delightful, keep on creating!". 

.

    When I read the book to my 18 month old granddaughter Katharine she loved the pictures but best of all she liked the back cover with all the circle paint pots of colors which she pointed to over and over asking me the colors

       A Grandmother called to tell me

       She was reading her 6 year old grandson Painted A to Z and he wanted to talk to me . She put him on the phone . He said “Barb, the plate that the apple is on looks like the ocean.It's connected to the world “. I said “ Wow! Thank you so much for telling me ! “. I asked his Grandma if she could send me any pictures he draws of  a room or house any size, shape, color or material . 

A dear friend

read the book to her 3 yr old grand niece.

She said " Great interactive book . Get it! 

  I read the A page to our then 4 yr old grandson Bo .

I asked him if the apple on the plate was on a table or on the floor. He said “The apple on the plate is on a wooden floor, in a white room , in a round , stone house. I drew a sketch when I got home. When I showed him the sketch the next day he said the house is surrounded by snow and there are animals on the top of the roof. Together we drew a zebra which he turned into a unicorn. An elephant ,giraffe, a blue pig and a green cow.
