My daughter loves Starry Night. This is wonderful to be able to read the story.
I would love to win this for my daughter, thanks for the chance! What a great book!
My daughter who is an artist enjoys painting and photography and would enjoy sharing this book with my grandson who’s in preschool. He has fun crating his own masterpieces when the cat leaves his crayons and paints alone.
Get ready to be inspired, Robyn D. (ME), Kristin H. (WV), and Ella M. (PA)! You are the lucky winners of this book and poster giveaway.
