8 Soon-to-Be-Classic Children’s Books
Art & Max, by David Wiesner
When Art the iguana asks Max the lizard to paint him, Max takes the request literally, covering his friend in artistic styles
from Seurat-like pointillism to line drawing. It’s fast-paced slapstick but also a celebration of art itself.
Best for: 5- to 8-year-olds.
