We have tried to raise our boys with an understanding and appreciation of different types of art and music. I think we’ve done a decent job. This conversation was when they were about 9 and 11. Still one of my favorites.——————————————-The Boy: “Mom, you know how the TMNT are all named for artists?”Mom: “Yes.”The Boy: “Can you get me biographies of all of them? DaVinci, Michelangelo and the others? I was just thinking that I really want to learn about them. And Beethoven, too. I also need to get a poster or something of the Mona Lisa so I can start drawing it.”Mom: (After giving him a big kiss.) “Absolutely I can find you some biographies! I have some books about Michelangelo you can start looking at now.”The Boy: “Awesome!”The Brother: (Looking at the cover of the Michelangelo art book I just handed his brother) “Hey, that’s David!”©Holly B. of 2 Kids and Tired Books 2007-2014 All rights reserved.
