Grandma in Blue with Red Hat
Grandma in Blue with Red Hat is about a little boy who goes to an art class at the museum every Saturday. He learns that art belongs in a museum because it is beautiful, tells a story, comes from far away, makes people feel good, and there is only one like it in the whole world. When the little boy gets home, he realizes that his grandma is all those things. Maybe he should give his grandma to the museum. The curator of the museum says that his grandma sounds exceptional, but they do not take grandmas. The little boy decides to make his own artwork and hang them, inviting all his friends, family, and curator to see. They are all paintings of his grandma.
I really liked this book. It was neat that they mention real artists, like Picasso. I wonder if it is true that Picasso liked to paint in his underwear. The illustrations are colorful and detailed. I loved that the little boy thinks his grandma is so special and wants to make her into an art exhibit. I think other kids would like this book, especially if they like painting and creating art.
