Animated Art “Books” for Kids

Here’s a fun site I just dis­cov­ered for those of you with lower ele­men­tary age stu­dents Mighty Books.com offers ani­mated books for early read­ers with a vari­ety of themes.  Visit the page titled, “Art & Music” for slide shows of paint­ings by Van Gogh, Renoir or Rem­ing­ton set to the music of great com­posers, or assem­ble a vir­tual jig­saw puz­zle made from the “Car­ni­val of Har­le­quin” by Joan Miro.  Fol­low along as you lis­ten to a story that accom­pa­nies the paint­ings of Jan Ver­meer.  Then, check out “Go to the Museum” for a vir­tual field trip of Impres­sion­ist and Post-Impressionist paint­ings.  You can also learn about the artists and art move­ments here, too. For access to the entire site, you will need to pur­chase a mem­ber­ship for 24.99/year, but all that I’ve told you about is avail­able for free!  So, where was all of this when my kids were little??!

    Thank you for shar­ing! Some­times I am shocked when I haven’t run across a really great resource before…this is one of those times. I’ll def­i­nitely be shar­ing this like on my blog as well.
