Learning through Pop Art

The BOOG is obsessed with Monet and Van Gogh for the moment so I seized the chance to turn her interest in art into a learning opportunity and I was amazed at how many books there are out there to choose from! My main focus, unintentionally, turned out to be Pop Art. I was looking for ABC’s 123’s and Colors and came across these very inspiring board books perfect for little hands and big imaginations.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987), Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) and Wayne Thiebaud (1920- )were all key figures in the world of Pop Art and although not vintage classics, learning about letters, numbers and colors has never been so modish!

Board books make perfect sense when you have children. At the very least they allow a child to get used to the idea of reading a book. They have sturdy coated cardboard pages that withstand throwing, food spills and the dreaded gnawing and chewing of little ones but sometimes a board book can offer so much more than reading training wheels and here are three examples of just that.
