We love reading books and it is fun to read the ones that have a bit of interaction with the book and the reader...  We were sent the book, Arlo's ARTrageous Adventure by David LaRochelle. 


First of all, let me start with saying that I love going to Museums.  Guess that was an added bonus for me going to art school.  Anyways... I love going and hope that Broxton shares my love of art... We have never been to an art museum together.. I honestly just do not think he is ready to go at this time... 
But, we did have the chance to go to museums through the internet and books!  

In Arlo's ARTrageous Adventure, we get to enjoy the arts with a lift the flap theme.
In the opening page, we meet Arlo and see that he loves baseball.
The adult in the book doesn't really give Arlo a reason to want to go... as she simply says "We're going to the art museum whether you like it or NOT!"  ( I wouldn't be thrilled either if this was how it was presented to me!)  As we turn each page, the adult is giving Arlo the "rules" of visiting the museum.
~  Be on Best Behavior
~ Speak Softly
~ Don't Touch Anything

We see all sorts of art on each of the pages... From pottery to paintings, sculptures to artifacts...
But what the adult doesn't see???
The lift the flaps on each of the art work transforms the art from all the seriousness into the fun that allows children to enjoy!  
I personally thought that the page of "inspiration" was quite cute... but the best for me? 
The page on looking at ourselves!
I thought the book was put together perfectly and I know that this is going to be a favorite for Broxton!
