Line Art Books for Kids

Lines are one of the first elements of art we teach in our Art classes. Children’s books are a great way to learn more about lines in art and then maybe you can draw some of God’s creation.

Color may be the most exciting element of art, but lines are what we use to create the first stroke, shape or object! 

God is the Master Artist and we have the honor to live in His work of Art. He has placed lines all through His creation and  you probably see some of them everyday. The trunk of a tree, the veins in a leaf and the jagged mountains in the horizon are just some of the lines He used. 


Lines help us illustrate and direct the viewer to see what you what them to see!

Every picture created begins with a line. Even your name is lines because letters are all lines. It has been said, “A line is a dot that went for a walk.”

You can take a dot for a walk to tell a story with a stick man or a simple animal character.  

Lines can be wavy, jagged, zig-zag, wiggle, dotted, broken, curved… etc.  Our favorite art books for kids that illustrate lines are listed below and linked to Amazon. Most can be found at your local library, but all of them make great home library selections.

You can read the publisher’s description and customer reviews. *affiliate links
