Way to go, Alice!
Back to school means back to books and desks and classrooms…for many kids, at least. But what does it mean to kids around the world? There’s a wonderful recent book that answers the question of what school days are like for kids across the globe, and it’s illustrated by one of our favorite Oopsy Daisy artists, Alice Feagan!
School Days Around the World, written by Margriet Ruurs and published by Kids Can Press, profiles Marta in Azezo, Ethiopia, Luciano in Mérida, Venezuela, and Alina in Taraz, Kazakhstan (among other kids and places around the world). Alice’s vibrant images bring the book to life.
To celebrate back to school, here and wherever kids are sharpening their pencils and tying their school shoes, we have a sale on Back-to-School art and all our other art that sparks kids’ imaginations. Be sure to check out our collection of Alice Feagan’s work, including educational art like her Super Solar System, pictured here (and read last week’s blog post to find out about the exciting link between art and learning!).
From all of us here at Oopsy Daisy, here’s wishing you a great school year.
