Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Art Room Books

Hello my name is Mollie and I am addicted to children’s books.

Yes, it is true – I cannot resist a good picture book, especially if it goes along with an art class concept or lesson.

Throughout my years of teaching I have acquired a grand collection of picture books. Recently a friend asked me what books I use in my classroom and as I scoured my blog and lesson plans, I realized I needed a comprehensive list in one place.

So here it is, folks! I will update as I add more to my ever-growing collection.
