Book Inspired Art Project with Cut + Paste Bookshelf

Bookmarks has partnered with Cut & Paste Bookshelf to bring a book-inspired craft every month. New projects are available the second Saturday of each month. Read the book, then make the art - or make the art first and be inspired to read a new book! 

May’s pick Just Like Me, written and illustrated by Vanessa Brantley Newton. Just Like Me is a phenomenal collection of poetry that invites readers to find themselves in the brightly illustrated pages. Join Cut + Paste Bookshelf next Saturday, May 8 to follow along with an art project inspired by the book, creating a bright sun collage as you talk about ways you can be a shining light for others!
