we heart art

This book has been a favorite of Eoghan's for a long time now, and guess who discovered it on the shelf this past week? Ummhmm his little brother. They both like it for the same reasons, they can identify with the little boy in the book, as he goes about his daily routines. They can pick out the mama, the papa, the grandparents that take care of them with love, and their friends.

Yet, Eoghan has taken his love for this book a step further. Lately he has been noticing the mediums that the artists use to illustrate their books, and collage and watercolor seem to be his favorites. This book is illustrated with both. And so, "In My Heart" has been inspiring some collage work for us. I hope you enjoy it as well.
