    (This review may be biased because I had glasses and drew constantly as a little girl.) A sweet story about a little artiste who proves to have a heart as big as her talent after her little brother decides to...help (as little brothers do). Louise gives readers a gentle lesson about forgiveness without being sappy or precious. Simply begging to be made into an animated series, Kelly balances bold colors and shapes with her bouyant linework and exuberant character design.

    I read an advanced reader copy and these simple colors are bold and vibrant. Louise is a budding artist and very passionate about her work while her tag along little brother, Art, just wants to share in her passion. This is perfect timing for our family as my five and three year olds are bursting with creativity that doesn't always mesh well. And the addition of a new little brother.

Like when I took out a craft I did when I was five to show to my daughter and came back to see my perfectly colored Santa now had a green mustache and cheeks. *sigh* After reading this story we were able to talk about why her embellishment made me both sad and happy. When we finished the story my daughter looked at her baby brother and said "when he's older he better not do that to my pictures". What I love about this book is that it is told by pictures and a little conversation between the siblings. While my three year old was just excited about the book in general, waiting and watching my five year old as her eyes widen when she caught on to what little brother Art was doing to Louise's art was a great moment. This is a book to make little minds engaged and thoughtful. Thanks to HC. posted: http://creativemadnessmama.com/blog/2...

    Intent on her drawing, and determined to create her masterpiece, Louise is blind at first to her younger brother's almost slavish devotion, his efforts to attract her attention by joining her in the creative process. When he 'destroys' her best effort yet - a portrait of her cat - by creating a chain of paper people, she is angry at first. Then she discovers just who the paper people are meant to represent and is reminded that although she loves her art, she loves Art - her brother - even more.. Intent on her drawing, and determined to create her masterpiece, Louise is blind at first to her younger brother's almost slavish devotion, his efforts to attract her attention by joining her in the creative process. When he 'destroys' her best effort yet - a portrait of her cat - by creating a chain of paper people, she is angry at first. Then she discovers just who the paper people are meant to represent and is reminded that although she loves her art, she loves Art - her brother - even more... A sweet tale of a girl, her brother, their cat, and their art, Louise Loves Art is a tribute to young artists, and a reminder that what at first might seem like a violation of one's own artistic integrity, can actually be a welcome contribution, a first step toward collaboration with others. It also depicts the loving bond between sisters and brothers, highlighting the elder sibling's role in encouraging the younger. The illustrations themselves - appropriately, for a book about creating art - are quite appealing, making excellent use of a limited color palette, and adeptly capturing the emotional state of each scene. I thought Louise's cat was particularly charming. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories about art and/or siblings.

    ”I love art! It’s my imagination on the outside.” Louise wants to find the perfect spot to showcase her drawing. But can Louise’s masterpiece survive her little brother--Art? Louise loves Art. And Art loves her. An adorable brother and sister team that exhibit the magic of art, enthusiasm, patience, and love. Ms. Light’s bright red dashes and highlights bring the space on the pages alive. Every corner pops! It’s amazing what three or four colors can do together. Simple, fun, and inspiring!

    Sweet! This book made me smile, and I loved the antics of the cat and Art, Louise's brother. Louise's character is so distinct that she would make a great example of characterization. I also love picture books in which the illustrations tell a different story/additional story than the text. The conflict/resolution between big sister and little brother reminded me of Emily's Blue Period. Sweet! This book made me smile, and I loved the antics of the cat and Art, Louise's brother.

    Louise Loves Art - Kelly Light She does indeed, and it is fun to watch her work at it. Plot twist: art is an activity she enjoys AND the name of her little brother. Never saw that one coming unless, of course, you've read Seen Art? Which is also delightful.library copy Louise Loves Art - Kelly Light She does indeed, and it is fun to watch her work at it.

    Louise is a little girl who is working towards creating a gallery in her house. She has been drawing her masterpiece, a picture of her black cat in a “fierce” pose. Once she has all of her pictures she goes to work setting them all around the house. During this her younger brother, Art, is trying to get her attention. The illustrations show her ignoring Art and running around putting the pictures on the walls leading to the fridge. Art is then seen in the background with her masterpiece in his h Louise is a little girl who is working towards creating a gallery in her house. She has been drawing her masterpiece, a picture of her black cat in a “fierce” pose. Once she has all of her pictures she goes to work setting them all around the house. During this her younger brother, Art, is trying to get her attention. The illustrations show her ignoring Art and running around putting the pictures on the walls leading to the fridge. Art is then seen in the background with her masterpiece in his hand. The illustration shows Art using scissors to cut Louise’s masterpiece into a string of people holding hands. She is upset at first and after Art apologizes she accepts the piece and says she loves it. Louise then takes the new version of the masterpiece and hangs it up in the place of honor, the middle of the fridge. The book shows the love between two siblings and how forgiveness is the best answer. This is a great book for young kids in first grade or even beginning of second grade. This book has great illustrations to keep the child engaged in the book but also has a few longer words, and even some in french. This is a good book to start the conversation about sharing and working with others. The fun illustrations and complex writing makes this a good book to help students learn to read longer sentences and books.

    "I love art! It's my imagination on the outside." says Louise. She draws constantly and is now working to make that great masterpiece. She also loves her little brother, who's name happens to be Art. But she gets mad her brother when he takes her new art masterpiece and destroys it trying to make a masterpiece of his own by copying his big sister. Pictures are mostly black and white with the characters in color and red highlights (especially the red eyeglasses that are everywhere.) The concept of "I love art!

Pictures are mostly black and white with the characters in color and red highlights (especially the red eyeglasses that are everywhere.) The concept of the story was good but I thought the story in words were lacking. However, on the second read, I realized that there is more story in the pictures which leaves the reader to tell some of the story themselves by what is going on in the pictures. I also like the relationship between big sister and little brother who obviously adores her. I like when Louise realizes that she has hurt Art's feelings and comes up with a wonderful way to say she is sorry.

    The title is very clever - the story reveals that Art is more than just the picture Louise draws but also her brother! As a person with many siblings, the message was very clear to the readers too: while your siblings may be a pain in the butt and do things you don't like (or that ruin what you were doing), you still love them more than you love things. The color contrast was also quite smart as the eye is naturally drawn to the colors that stand out on the page.

The color contrast was also quite smart as the eye is naturally drawn to the colors that stand out on the page. So in the first pass or two, you might miss the smaller details. I noticed that all the color blocks of red tend to be Louise and Art (something that connects them) and that all of the red in Art's drawings have to do with him and his big sister loving one another/him admiring his big sister. I love it! Did anyone else notice Maxim and Herman?

    Miss 3 is very literal and word plays are still difficult for her. She found it confusing having art in the book refer to both the creation of art and Art (baby brother). Would have been a higher rating otherwise as I think the values were nice. Miss 3 and I like to explore different books and authors at the library, sometimes around particular topics or themes. We try to get different ones out every week or so; it's fun for both of us to have the variety and to look at a mix of new & favourite a Miss 3 is very literal and word plays are still difficult for her.

    I liked the illustrations in this book. They were mostly black and white, but the characters were colored and the color red was used throughout the book. The red contrasted well with the black and white. I liked the story itself as well. It's about a boy who wants to be like his sister, but she is focused on her artwork.

    This was a cute story that I'm glad to have stumbled upon today because my son (1 and a half) ruined my daughter's (three) finger painting so it was super relatable for her. I wish there was a bit more story because we breezed right through, but this might be a great pick for kids with short attention spans.

    Such a cute read and definitely a good book to read to an oldest child so that they have a new perspective on if their younger siblings take creative liberties with their things! I could have used this when I was younger and had a little brother!

    Louise loves art - it's how she shows her imagination on the outside. But Louise also has a little brother named Art. And as Louise preps for her "art show," Art works to be just like his big sister, causing a little trouble along the way. But not to worry, because Louise loves art...and Art.

    My students were so-so on it but I adored it. The art style is SO fun and I had so much fun pointing out the antics of the cat with them. A meaningful little story about connecting with a sibling.
