What fun to be able to share my children’s books, first with children and later with grandchildren! I was so delighted to receive this lovely review for My Fingerpaint Masterpiece from author and publisher Amanda Thrasher. She even shared a photo of her adorable granddaughter with me!
Here is her 5-Star Review:
“It’s plain to see My Fingerpaint Masterpiece is a beautifully illustrated picture book, narrated in the most delightful rhyming way! However, what I found while reading it to my granddaughter was the important gentle life lesson that was woven masterfully between the lines.
Many children, though they may love to express themselves with arts and crafts, can feel disappointed with one glance at the ‘masterpieces’ they’ve so carefully created. Frustrated, they set their work aside and hide their overwhelming feeling of disappointment as they compare their work to their classmates.
This book teaches children that art truly IS in the eyes of the beholder. It’s expressive and an expression of themselves, as they express their feelings, thoughts, or whatever they would like through the art that they create. Creativity via paint, materials, or words, should always be encouraged and can be a beautiful escape for children of all ages. I highly recommend this book.”
