I’m a teacher with a penchant for picture books and art projects.
I want to raise kind and creative kids.
Despite being committed to alla these things, I still often feel like all the ideas have left the building when I’m looking for arty inspiration.
On many an occasion, I’ve been supremely exasperated by an art or craft project gone pear-shaped.
I’m often intrigued by new art processes but am too hesitant to try them or just don’t have the right supplies.
Often I get to the end of the day with such brain drain that bedtime stories are a drag, not a joy.

Despite living in a home surrounded by books and art supplies, I’m always on the lookout for ways to connect with my kids through reading and creating.
Introducing KidArtLit.
A subscription box delivered to your doorstep each month, allowing you to easily integrate art & storytime into your family’s routine.

At our place, we try to embrace the saying
“Something you wear, something you read, something you want, something you need,”
in our Christmas present-buying for our kids.

Here are the books that will be appearing in the stockings of my kids, and some of the books that I wish were appearing in my stocking. (Because one is never too old for picture books.)
