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! 

July's pick is Becoming Vanessa by Vanessa Brentley-Newton. This story will help kids just starting school transform from timid caterpillars into beautiful butterflies so they can love who they are.

Visit here, to learn more about the art project and how it connects to the book!
