Mom and Me Art Journal To Share
Author: Lacy Mucklow and Bethany Robertson
Format: Trade Paperback , 128 Pages
ISBN: 9781631063343
Publisher: Race Point Publishing
$12.99 US / $16.99 CAN

I am always looking for something fun to do with my kids so the Mom and Me Art Journal is something we can truly do together. The Mom And Me Art Journal allows us to bond and connect while sharing and creating together. With school out I try to do several activities each week with my kids to keep them in the habit of writing, spelling, just the small things. 

This full-color art journal for moms and kids to color and draw together in is designed to be a sharing experience. Mom and child can write each other letters, draw what scares them, imagine what they want to be when they are grown up, color a scene using only one favorite color, whatever their imaginations lead them to!
Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share is filled with fun hand-lettering and artwork from Bethany Robertson along with creative prompts from licensed art therapist Lacy Mucklow. Mucklow offers up the best ways to communicate with a child through creating together; how to start an open conversation with your child; questions you can ask that will help generate thoughtful responses; and how to tailor the quality time so it's still fun and engaging for your child.

Hand Lettering A to Z: A World of Creative Ideas for Drawing and Designing Alphabets
Author: Abbey Sy
Format: Trade Paperback , 128 Pages
ISBN: 9781631592829
Publisher: Rockport Publishers
$22.99 US / $29.99 CAN



My children were most into Hand Lettering A to Z my sons love drawing comic book characters and including the little bubbles for dialogue and now they can include their own doodled language. Both of my sons were very interested in this book and enjoyed trying out making their own new writing styles!
Hand Lettering A to Z is a fun, hands-on book in which artist and calligrapher Abbey Sy presents her creative lettering and invites artists from several countries to contribute alphabets of their own--all unique, all hand drawn. Each alphabet is paired with a collection of phrases to show readers different ways to use the lettering and have fun with it in different languages, including French, Spanish, Irish, Swedish, Portuguese, and more. Readers can use the phrases when making cards, gifts, or embellishing their journals. And unlike calligraphy, hand lettering does not require disciplined study. Hand-drawn lettering is meant to be personal and original, so even beginners can dive in!
