New Books

Over Canadian Thanksgiving, I ordered some new books for the shelf. I had tucked a bit of money away every once in a while over the summer. I was surprised to see I had as much to spend as I did. I bought an internet-linked Introduction To Music, The Story of Inventions - amusingly written and illustrated, a Puzzle Adventure/time travel book (R's favourite) about Ancient Roman culture, Alexander the Great from the Usborne Famous Lives series and a guide to the night sky in the hopes that I can answer a few more of the kids' questions.

I have been on the lookout for a book like The Usborne Art Treasury. It tells about an artist and why they were remarkable.

Then, it goes on to give an art project idea where you can explore the particular style or medium of the aforementioned artist.

K got busy right away sculpting foil and pipe cleaner figures after the work of Alberto Giacometti.
