The Artist, by Ed Vere

Creative young children will see themselves and the world around them in a fresh light in this charming story about an artistic soul. Through setbacks and triumphs, our young hero adds color and life to a drab gray city, bringing beauty to those who live there. It’s a journey that reminds us that it’s okay to color outside the lines: Art is full of heart!

About the Author

Author, Ed Vere

Ed Vere is an award-winning and New York Times bestselling writer & illustrator of picture books. He is the artist in residence at the Born Free Foundation. His book ‘The Artist’ partly came out of
co-creating a visual literacy program with CLPE (Centre for Literacy in Primary Education) that helps teach teachers how to understand pictures and use drawing constructively in the classroom – taking away their fear of drawing, so they can feel confident about using drawing with purpose. The Education Endowment Foundation and The Royal Society of Artists have highly evaluated this award-winning course. More information about this course can be found here.

You can hear ICAN’s Audio Book Tour every third Thursday at 5 pm PT, with a rebroadcast the following Sunday at 8a PT. Check out more books featured in ICAN’s Audio Book Tour.
