Teaching Art in the Primary Grades is a very informational book. Any home school parent or teacher could take this book and easily teach with it. I love how it covers three grades levels.
In looking through the book, I realize how vital Art is. There is a lot of careers that use Art. For example, there was a drawing in the book of a bridge. An engineer would be using Art.
The book could also be used for parents to have something to do with their children. To teach them how to be creative. So many different projects.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher through Celebrate. This book review is my own opinion.

More from Jerry
Ever since I was young, I have always loved art. It was only natural for me to be teaching and sharing the love of art to young people. Over the years, a number of parents, students and fellow teachers and administrators suggested that I should write a book about teaching art, particularly to the emerging beginning artist. This would hopefully help them gain confidence in themselves in return would flow into their reading and writing subjects. After retiring, pondering and headaches, I started putting it together and throwing around ideas to myself on what should be included and “Wala”…..here it is.
