The Noisy Paint Box: The Colors and Sounds of Kandinsky’s Abstract Art by Barb Rosenstock tells the inspiring story of Vasya Kandinsky's journey to introduce the world to abstract art. Vasya was raised to be a proper Russian boy, learning math, science, and piano. But when he is given an art set, he hears and sees art as music. Throughout his life, he continues to hear brilliant colors singing and vibrant sounds dancing, but no one else understands Kandinsky's paintings. Will he be brave enough to step away from his proper life to paint what he hears?

This book is a celebration of creativity with beautiful illustrations by Mary GrandPré. Introducing the wondrous story of Vasily Kandinsky, one of the first painters of abstract art, this book will inspire generations of children to embrace their creativity. Kandinsky experienced colors as sounds, and sounds as color (a type of synesthesia)–and grew to embrace it to make beautiful art. This hardcover book is 40 pages long and perfect for children ages 4-8 years.
