At the Children's Art Museum we have a library of over 500 picture books.
The books are chosen both for their story and Illustrations. We consider the
Picture books to be our collection of artwork, and yes the kids get to use
them. In 5 years we have on lost 2 books to damage. I would be happy to send
you our list either snail mail or email (Microsoft works 4.5 database 82KB).
e-mail me off list at kimberly, include your snail mail addy if you
want it sent that way. The books are grouped in broad categories Reference,
Storybook, Picture Book, Art (books about artists, idea books, or books
illustrated with art mainly poetry), and Early Readers. The data base also
includes author, illustrator, and subject and can be sorted.

Color Wizard by Barbara Brenner, and Mouse Paint by Ellen Stohl Walsh. Any
