My Friend, Line: Teaching Young Children to Express Their Feelings Through the Art Element Line
This is no ordinary sketchbook! My Friend, Line is a rhyming read-aloud book with imaginative open-ended doodling prompts along the way. With Line’s friendly invitation, young children are encouraged to draw a happy Line, mad Line, dancing Line, and more. Sometimes Line is bold, and sometimes she is fine . . . It really depends on how she feels at the time.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. There are many more pages at the end for budding artists to continue their own story. This book inspires children to express their feelings and provides the judgment-free opportunity to create art freely. With a unique approach that combines rhyme, creativity, and art education, My Friend, Line is sure to bring a new element of joy to child’s play.
