The Book of Mistakes

by Corinna Luyken

One eye was bigger than the other. That was a mistake.
The weird frog-cat-cow thing? It made an excellent bush.
And the inky smudges… they look as if they were always meant to be leaves floating gently across the sky.

Monet Paints A Day

by Julie Danneberg

It is 1885 the famous impressionist painter, Claude Monet, settles in on an isolated beach to begin another day of open air painting. With single-minded focus, Monet becomes so absorbed in his work, that he doesn’t feel the wind kicking up the sand, he doesn’t see the tide coming closer, and he definitely doesn’t notice the big wave towering over his head. Until it is too late.

A Life of Color

In this new book, Delaunay and her six-year-old son Charles have a fantastical adventure in their car, modeled after her 1925 design for a Citroën convertible. They glide into a landscape of colors and shapes, as if they’ve driven into one of her paintings. Delaunay helps Charles understand her artistic process by asking him what shapes and colors he recognizes along the way, and Charles realizes that his mother’s thoughts about art permeate every aspect of their life.

Stay Up Late



Stay Up Late By Maira Kalman

Little Creatures by Talking Heads

Mommy had. A little baby.
There he is. Fast asleep.
He’s just. A little plaything.
Why not. Wake him up?
Cute. Cute. Little baby.
Little pee pee. Little toes.
Now he’s comin’ to me.
Crawl across. The kitchen floor.

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I want to make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he’s just a plaything
We want to make him stay up all night
Yeah we do

See him drink. From a bottle.
See him eat. From a plate.
Cute. Cute. As a button.
Don’t you want to make him. Stay up late.
And we’re having fun. With no money.
Little smile. On his face.
Don’t cha’ love. The little baby.
Don’t you want to make him. Stay up late.

[Chorus:]

Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister (all night long)
In the playpen…woo…(all night long)
Little baby goes, ha! (all night long)
I know you want to leave me…

Why don’t. We pretend.
There you go. Little man.
Cute. Cute. Why not?
Late at night. Wake him up.

[Chorus]

Here we go (all night long)
Sister, sister…woo…
(with the television on)
Little baby goes…woo! (all night long)
Hey, hey, baby! (all night long)
And he looks so cute (all night long)
In his little red suit (all night long)
