This adorable and unique book follows young Oscar as his art collection (and art appreciation) builds and builds throughout his life.
He loves looking at the art Great-Granny creates...but his own drawings never look the way he wants them to. So instead of making art, he decides to collect it. Over the years Oscar's room becomes filled with beautiful paintings and drawings in every style and color. His collection grows and grows and grows until a museum needs to be built to house it all!
A refreshing take on the dedicated, early love for learning and specialized topics children can have, and which homeschoolers can definitely understand! Ages 5-8.
