The Art of Early Learning Series: Welcome Smart Artt
written by D.A. Batrowny (www.smartartt.com) Published by Tate Out Loud
Available on Amazon.com (see link)
This wonderful story is more than a story, it is an instructional guide for parents. Both within the story itself and in the introduction and concluding note, this helps parents to understand ways that they can benefit their babies in their early developmental stages. Something I've long believed as a parent is that many of us truly underestimate our infant's ability to learn and comprehend and to have a staggering intellectual potential. This is why it is so important to read, sing, and talk to our children in grown-up language from infancy. This truth is emphasized by the author in this book as well as on her website. She is definitely qualified to write on this subject, having spent many professional years helping parents and children to grow in their developmental processes. This book is about a youngster named Artt and his adventures around a nursery, in which he designs a book for his father about how to help him develop. Even though this book is rich in meaning for parents, it is still very much a children's book. Your child(ren) will love reading it with you and will surely grasp its message of how smart they really are and how much potential for growth they really have if they are aided in the right way. The illustrations are perfect and are no doubt instrumental in helping children with this story as well. This book is part of a series.
If you would like a review of your children's or young adults book, please contact me with the email form. I am also looking for children's illustrators who would like to showcase their work on my blog or use it temporarily as a background.
