provides perfect creative inspiration
for children with bright and engaging ideas
presented in an unique and accessible way

– CRAFT COUNCIL


The 5 and 2 year old went to bed
discussing what colour ‘happy’ was.
Frankly I felt like a pretty good parent
at the end of the day, and the book
is already a firm favourite.

– AOI


Vibrant and eye-opening from the start,
Think and Make Like an Artist
combines fun and creativity with thoughtfulness
and gentle self-reflection in a way
I have not often seen done so well

– PLAYING BY THE BOOK


Think and Make Like an Artist
is a fabulous activity book,
especially fora family
with an artistic child or two.

– THE BOOKBAG

 
You could return to it many times
over many years and always
get something new from it.

– KIDS IN MUSEUMS


The book feels as fresh and
modern as the artists it highlights,
and provides hours of fun,
sparking new ideas along the way.
Highly recommended.

that will make that fabulous lightbulb
of inspiration ping on above your head.
