A Picnic with Monet was named one of Teacher's Picks "Best New Books" by Scholastic Parent & Child.
What we like about it: Throughout the colourful pages of this board book, we've introduced to Selma the notions of colours, shapes, and vocabulary inspired by Monet's landscapes. Finally, we love the idea of raising the discovery and learning of famous paintings.
