PAPER ZOO by Oscar Sabini, a collage book

COLLAGE_BOOK_PAPER_ZOO_OSCAR_SABINI_BOOKS_FOR_KIDS_CUTEANDKIDS_BLOG

Oscar Sabini is a Venetian illustrator and collage artist. The starting point of his striking collages is a random construction of forms which, piece after piece, become a recognizable image. He designs collage books, and we love them.

His interest in the technique of collage and teaching it to children resulted in two collage books, Paper Zoo and Paper Monsters (Thames & Hudson, 2015 & 2017), which help kids create their own collage pieces.

best books about outdoor activities with kids + a game

I remember my chilhood days, always running outside with my friends. Our legs and later, our bicycles, were our best adventure friends. Nowadays we live in a city and my kids are rising without contact with Nature. This is the reason why I began the search for the best books about outdoor activities with kids.

I have made a selection, some of them are in English and other in Spanish, but we hope the language will not be a problem, because nature speaks a unique language, the language of freedom. 

We wish these books help our family to get back outside. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure this spring or summer, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this post.

Playing, eating, writing, learning, and helping out, is universal for children around the world—just with a few variations!

What do you do with … by Kobi Yamada

What do you do books are truly great picture books that explore in an easy, kid-friendly tone how you can nourish ideas, and what you can learn from problems.

What do yo do with an idea? is the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world. As the child’s confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens.

How to Be a .. Scientific, Engineer, Architect by Andrea Beaty

I am a women of science. When I was little, I was lucky enough to have a teacher that loved maths. She taught me that maths are not only numbers, but shapes and volumes, a key to understand what surrounds us.

I try to pass that passion to my kids and I am in love with these 3 books written by Andrea Beaty: Iggy Peck, Architect; Rosie Revere, Engineer and Ada Twist, Scientific. Do you want to know more about them?

ANATOMIE – Learning muscles with pleasure

I’ve remembered how difficult was to memorise all the bones, muscles and organs in the body. Repeating once and again, positioning them in books with real and “scary” images, a little too much for my 9 years old self.

ANATOMIE is a book by an artist, Helene Druvert and a doctor, his father. Easy to follow, fun and beautiful. A real jewel that I would loved to have been little!
