									As a little girl tours and twirls through the halls of the art museum, she finds herself on an exciting adventure. Each piece of art evokes something new inside of her: silliness, curiosity, joy, and ultimately inspiration. When confronted with an empty white canvas, she is energized to create and express herself - which is the greatest feeling of all. With exuberant illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, The Museum playfully captures the many emotions experienced through the power of art, and each child’s unique creative process.

Four stars. “A refreshing, infectious tale that imaginatively captures one youngster’s excitement over art, this is highly recommended.” - Video Librarian

"Elizabeth Cottle’s age-appropriate voice effectively conveys the little girl’s feelings, especially her happiness at knowing she can make pictures with her own ideas and imagination. Introduce young viewers to the world of art and creativity through this joyful production." - Booklist (video review)

"Students will appreciate Reynolds’s loose, swooping ink drawings, presented on a larger scale here than in the book, and his masterly use of white space ensures that the girl has plenty of room to dance, tumble, and skip across the screen. This is a wonderful story to share with art teachers or anyone wishing to celebrate the creative spirit." - School Library Journal (video review)

National Parenting Publications Award Silver Winner. "This story will make you want to create something beautiful." - National Parenting Publications Awards

"The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art... Set against crisp white pages, both the girl and the pictures she views stand out. ...this is a fun read-aloud." - Booklist
