picture books that integrate the arts

I'm looking for picture books you would suggest that could be integrated with the arts-- visual arts, music, or drama for students in grades 1 and 2. I have thought of Eric Carl and Leo Leoni as they have great illustrations students could try out their style. Any other suggestions?

I like to use Peter Reynold's books Ish and The Dot to help my students feel comfortable with their drawing ability. For dance I like The Jellybeans and the Big Dance by Laura Numeroff. Art, by Patrick McDonnell is good, I Ain't Gonna Paint No More, by Karen Beaumont, and My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss. These were recommended at an art conference I attended. You can act out lots of good picture books for drama activities.

Where the Wild Things are by Maurice Sendak.
They can create their own wild things with collage or paint, make up a dance and music for it for the wild rumpus. Make masks.
write stories from the wild things point of view, or describe thier own wild thing.

Use Jan Brett's style of having a main illustration then an elaborate border with other parts of the story told in little pictures in the border.

I really like The Remarkable Farkle McBride, by John Lithgow (the actor!!). It's about all the instruments in an orchestra.

Who knew? Occasionally children's books written by celebrities are good!

Peter and the Wolf is a great way to introduce music as a way of telling a story.

Olivia books generally have art involved and are a great way to introduce some art.

Books by Todd Parr are very simple art and easy for students to mimic.

Museum Shapes
incorporates art and math concepts....I think there is also a Museum numbers book?

Children's books about dance http://delightfulchildrensbooks.com/2010/12/10/dance/

Eric Carle is also a great illustrator to mimic...he uses painted paper to cut/tear and make his pictures.

Or simply focus on the ART and tie in reading skills. Look at a picture and have students make up a story to go with the art. Have students tell the "Painter's Purpose"...why did they paint this pic? What do they want you to feel?

Also found this website with a list of children's books that may help.

Katie books...

There is a series of books by James Mayhew that integrate the Art World through the eyes of a precocious little girl named Katie. They are not easily found in book stores but can be found on E Bay or Amazon. They are VERY worth the hunt and the price. Our grade level (i teach first) purchased copies of most of the books which we use to introduce realism vs. abstract as well as famous artists before our trip to an art museum.

some of the titles are:
Katie's Picture Show (the 1st book in the series)
Katie and the Sunflowers
Katie and the Impressionists
Katie's Sunday Afternoon
Katie and the Mona Lisa

by William Lach is a very unique picture book. It comes with a CD. The author selected music to fit famous paintings. I play the music for my students and have them draw their own picture first, before I show them the famous work of art in the book. We discuss tone of music, music for movies and visualization. The kids love this lesson. It actually take two to three days to do it when you have the students draw to the music first.
