Creativity is Alive and Well in a Studio That Can Be Anywhere

Emily Arrow's Studio A Place for Art to Start is a perfect picture book for young readers to enjoy during this unprecedented time in our world when we are all in our homes and waiting for the covid19 virus to allow us back into the world. Schools are closed for the rest of the year and children are being homeschooled. Creativity is alive and well with this little bunny and his friends when they realize that a studio for art, music, and dance can be anywhere. Imagination can thrive even if we are all in our homes without being out in the world.

A studio is a place for creating, writing, painting, and making music. Bunny and other friends like a room with great light. But some of the animal friends make a studio out of a tiny space without much light. Bunny and the other friends enjoy getting together in their studio to brainstorm ideas about the things that they are creating. The animal friends see their studio as a magical place where all ideas are welcome to share and bring our world together. Singing together in a studio can create a happier world. Bunny and the other animals also learn that art in paintings can be seen in a variety of ways. An artist knows that sharing art can spark a variety of ideas. The idea that everyone in either a big city or a small town can find a space to call their studio is a lesson to be learned from these little animals. Bunny thinks that even your yard can become your studio to create something magical.

The colorful pages of Studio A Place for Art to Start tell a delightful story that is needed for the time that we are living in now. Young readers will be engaged in the details of the bright illustrations that fill each page. The illustrations feature a variety of creative activities and tools needed to bring art to life in a studio.

Studio A Place for Art to Start was published by Tundra Books, a division of Penguin/Random House. It is recommended for ages 3-7 and has an ISBN of 978-0-7352-6485-4. Parents who are homeschooling their children now will find this picture book a great addition to the home bookshelf.

Why not create a studio in your home now and create something magical?

      In the norm my son attends school. But in an afternoon visit you would think we home school. Our favorite activity is learning. I am a dad who is the househusband.
