Have you ever dreamed of being an author? How about an artist? Do you think it would be hard? Do you think it would be fun? Well, you can find the answers to these questions and more through Lois Ehlert’s The Scraps Book: Notes from a Colorful Life. You’ve probably seen lots of her books… Leaf Man, Feathers for Lunch, and Planting a Rainbow, just to name a few. Undoubtedly, you noticed that her pictures are always full of color and always full of “stuff.” That’s because she likes to create collages, using things that she’s found and collected. In Scraps Book, she talks about growing up in a family that was always creating things and how she was encouraged to create. You even get to see the art table that she had as a child and still has to this day. Scraps Book teaches us that anyone can be an artist. All it takes is a place to create, materials close at hand, and a little bit of encouragement.
