Art and literacy experiences can be integrated into the classroom to great effect, and Susan Thompson shows us how. Interpreting and creating pictorial representations is an important step on the road to literacy, as is experimenting with combinations of symbols and text. When we value and support children's symbolic expression and communication, children respond and gain in confidence.

This engaging book is a joyous exploration of visual expression combined with writing and reading. Included are instructions for more than two dozen printing, painting, collage, and other techniques that children will enjoy learning and using in their illustrations.
