CARLA DALY: Wall Art for Children {Review & Giveaway}

I found an artist whose art work is creative, playful, ingenius, beautiful, you name it - she has got the touch! Her name is Carla Daly. Her work is geared primarily towards kids. I was so excited when I received the Kids Illustrated Wall Map in the mail for my daughter Emma. Packaged with pure TLC.  The art work bursts with color and is exquisite in detail. The context of using animals to teach about the continents and ocean is brilliant. My daughter LOVES animals, and because she knows all of the animals pictured, it is an easy way to cross-compare where the animals live in explaining and learning about our world.

My daughter, Emma, has come to the determination that on the map, she is the "Cheetah". She is too funny! This is definitely a piece Emma will treasure for years to come.

This Map or any of Carla Daly's art work would look beautiful in any child's room.
