Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share (Paperback)

Create and Connect Side by Side (A Side-by-Side Book)

I try very hard each day to be open and available for my kids.  I want them to feel like they can tell me anything, even if it may disappoint me.  It helps that I talk openly about things I go through and struggle with (in an age-appropriate manner) because it opens the door to having a relationship that is built on sharing and trust.

The Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share is a full-color art journal for moms and kids to color and draw together in and is designed to be a sharing experience. Mom and child can write each other letters, draw what scares them, imagine what they want to be when they are grown up, color a scene using only one favorite color, whatever their imaginations lead them to!

Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share is filled with fun hand-lettering and artwork from Bethany Robertson along with creative prompts from licensed art therapist Lacy Mucklow. Mucklow offers up the best ways to communicate with a child through creating together; how to start an open conversation with your child; questions you can ask that will help generate thoughtful responses; and how to tailor the quality time so it’s still fun and engaging for your child.
