Review: Animals (Start with Art)

User Review  - Jennifer Oaks - Goodreads

I think that this is an excellent resource for teacher to use for incorporating art in the classroom. It can be used to talk about art history as well as talk about realistic and non-realistic objects. There is nothing like art to provide an opportunity to wind down and express themselves!
