EMMA'S RUG by Allen Say is a cute story about how a young girl discovers art. Everyone is impressed with her young age and ability to paint and draw with amazing talent. Emma swears she just “copies” the pictures she paints, but no one believes her. Emma finds all her ideas in a rug she was given at birth. One day her mother washes the rug and Emma feels her artistic days are over. Only then does she learn she can see the same images in other things. I like this book because it impresses upon kids that art can be found anywhere. Great for Kindergarten - 3rd grades.
