Snippets: A Story About Paper Shapes
Written and Illustrated by Diane Alber
Age range: 3-8
Listening to Diane Alber’s Snippets a child will get the best of two worlds. One is that a child will understand the importance of including all snippets, even if it is oddly shaped and does not fit into a norm of how shapes are supposed to look when building a house.
Kids will learn that all snippets no matter the shape can be accepted for who they are and what they can contribute to an art piece.
Second, this book inspires fantastical and whimsical creativity: art is “the beauty of being unique”. Alber’s gift as an artist is inspiring creativity and fun with any shape, just bring the paper and scissors.
