A Round of Robins by Katie Hesterman and illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier introduces poetry to the younger reader without it screaming and is an introduction of the habits of robins. This combination makes this a delightful choice for any bookshelves. The colors are muted, yet still pop. Yet they fit perfectly with the tone of the text. For all ages, but geared to ages four to six. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

When a proper Russian boy is given a box of paints from his aunt magic occurs. From a young age, well into adulthood Kandisnky did what was expected, but when colors sign out and music paints a picture, you must follow your heart and create art! This is a quick introduction into the life of an abstract painter. An afterwards gives more detail. The illustrations are powerful and capture the text and the work of Kandinsky perfectly. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
