I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!

This book is the BEST for introducing the fun of making a glorious painterly mess to artists of all ages. For extra fun, you can even sing it! Check out our YouTube channel to see Ms. Missy read it aloud.


The Dot

One of the most wonderful books that shows how anyone can be an artist- even when they don't think so.

A charming story about finding inspiration everywhere, and collecting colorful memories along the way.


The Day the Crayons Quit

The perfect read-aloud, especially if you like to do funny voices!
