Roy's House by Susan Goldman Rubin

Explore the world of Roy Lichtenstein's art through Susan Goldman Rubin's clever children's picture book. Roy's House takes the art of Roy Lichtenstein and puts it onto each page of this book. From the Cherry Pie oil painting done in 1962 to the painting of the house itself that was done on aluminum, the artwork and intertwining story in this novel are brilliant.

The story is short and easy to read, but there is a biography of Roy Lichtenstein at the end that may have more challenging vocabulary for advancing readers. I see this book becoming an excellent resource for elementary school art teachers and parents who are homeschooling their child. Art is vital to a child's growth, and I love the friendly manner in which this story brings art to life.
