A confession: When I visit a museum of any kind, I LOVE visiting the gift shop, sometimes even more than the museum itself. Stocked with unusual finds and carefully curated books, there is always the thrill of discovering something new that you can take home with you.
On a recent trip to the St. Louis Art Museum I discovered Mini Masters, a wonderful series of board books that I am excited to highlight. Each book focuses on selected works from a single artist. The paintings are paired with lilting text that draws attention to the details while being a joy to read aloud. These are perfect lap-sit books and a great way to familiarize little eyes to beautiful masterpieces.
The series so far features famous impressionists and post-impressionists. The authors do a wonderful job and I hope they will continue to expand the series to cover more art periods, artists, and art traditions.
