As part of our blog series Family Reads in the Open Field we’ll be rolling out reading lists for families to enjoy all summer long, as provided by local artists, artist-parents, and creative kids. Books selected from the reading lists, as well as radios, backyard games, and other fun stuff is available for check-out at the Open Field Tool Shed.
This week’s list is provided by sisters Amelia (age 5) and Vivien (age 3) Bras. Amelia attended the first Arty Pants in 2006, and she and Vivien have been inspired by the Walker ever since!
Thanks Amelia and Vivien for these wonderful suggestions!
