The Art of Miss Chew

Add "The Art of Miss Chew" by Patricia Polacco to one of my favorite children's books about art education.
This book is a fantastic story about a girl and the experience she has trying to navigate school with a difficulty in reading. What I ultimately adore is the lovely bond she develops with her homeroom and art teachers because of her learning disability, love for and talent in art and the support system she develops from the passionate teachers in her school. Found at and borrowed from the wonderful Montclair Public Library and I am sure available on, I will definitely be adding this book to my collection.
