Nature is an Artist explores different art forms that kids can find in the natural world. In the book, a group of children follow Nature--the most inspiring of teachers--as they discover the world's greatest art show hidden in plain sight. As they witness beautiful landscapes, stunning vistas, and unusual creatures, each child is inspired to recreate their own fine work of art.

With charming, rhythmic text and vivid, eye-catching illustrations from Natalia Colombo, Nature is an Artist celebrates nature's beauty and variety, and instills kids with:

  • the confidence to see themselves as artists!

  • respect and appreciation for nature (after reading, kids will appreciate the art in their own outdoor surroundings).
