I heard about this book and would love to get my hands on one. The one in Amazon is for ages 9 and up. Im not sure if thats the only one that ever existed or if there´s another one for younger kids. Where can I get this?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:<br><br>
Also, can anyone recommend a good art book for a very imaginative first grader? Shes basically waiting for me to challenge her with new techniques in art but I have no art background whatsoever.<br><br>
Any advice?<br><br>
Paz,

we have "The Anti-Coloring Book" by Susan Striker and Edward Kimmel (isbn 0-8050-0246-4) It's put out by Holt publishing, but we got ours ages and ages ago.<br><br>
Maybe the extra info will help you to track one down.<br><br>
There are other books in that series too.<br><br>
For the art--we have a few books from the "Start with Art" series (Still LIfe, Landscapes, Animals and People) On each double page spread, there is a blurb about a famous artist, an example of his/her work, and suggestions for trying your hand at a particular technique. (Aladdin Books--isbn0-7613-0843-1)<br><br>

I had this book when I was ~7 yrs old. I have it sitting in my lap right now and love to look back on what I wrote down in it. It was my favorite nighttime thing to do before I started keeping a journal as a kid.<br><br>
It is called The Fourth Anti coloring book by Susan Striker. I would love to know where I could find one for my daughter....off to do a search on Amazon.
