Start with Art Part One

Art can be wonderfully expressive. While not every child
with autism will respond strongly to art, every child should
be exposed to art early and often. Art gives children
new ways to communicate, and to see the world.
Art for Baby is a visually high impact sturdy board book 
ideally suited not just for babies, but for young children with
Haring's "Radiant Baby" and Caufield's "Duck" are among
the twelve images and the book also includes posters of
the art.
Of course, picture books already include art. But a book
like this removes the words and makes the art the focus.
In this series I'll feature ideas about how to incorporate 
more art into your child's reading and life.
Next week in Part Two: more for the early years.
