1) The Artist who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle: Each page is a large illustration with an animal painted an unlikely color: yellow cow, green lion, and a polka-dotted donkey. Don't forget to read the last page of the book that explains how Eric Carle grew up in Nazi Germany and wasn't allowed to look at abstract art. An art teacher went against the rules and the art he saw inspired his illustrations that we have come to know and love.
