Review – Anna’s Art Adventure & Care for Creation

   Anna’s Art Adventure,  by Bjorn Sortland. After the success of Katie & The Mona Lisa and the fact that I want to start getting books that Red Ted (3) can grow into, I decided to get hold of Anna’s Art Adventure. When we first opened it, I though 0h-oh – a reasonable amount of […]
