My kids, ages 4 and 6, are at the stage where they love arts and crafts, painting, exploring colors, shapes, and doodling on their own. As a result, we’ve collected a wonderful selection of art books that contribute to their love of learning about art and drawing. Here are some of our absolute and favorite must-have art books for children ages 3-6 with some fantastic recommendations from our readers on Instagram. Many of these are focused on inspiring drawing, painting and learning about shapes and colors.
