In The Garden With Van Gogh

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Mini Masters Art Series.  Collections of art & rhyming poems, with each board book highlighting a particular artist.  In The Garden With Van Gogh is the first we read in the series.  It features beautiful pages of... (you guessed it)... Vincent Van Gogh's work!

Age:  7 months
*  Activities/ Experiences:
          1. Floral nursery.
          2. Sensory bin.
Mmm, fresh blossom scent in the floral nursery

1.  Floral Nursery It just seemed logical to surround ourselves in a bunch of flowers for this book, as Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" and "Irises" are on the first couple pages.  We went to a local floral nursery for the aroma, sight, & feel of pretty, bright blooms.  And Baby Girl was really checking things out!

2.  Sensory Bin We've been playing in a sensory bin of colorful silk flowers while reading this book.  Throwing, feeling, tickling, & listening to Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers."  This book is as beautiful as the petals we tossed around!
