Review:
This book-and-game duo is a treasure for the entire family. While children become acquainted with masterpieces of the Renaissance through a picture card game played in the style of "Go Fish," teens and adults can learn about the art, artists, and time period in the accompanying book written in an engaging style. A double-page spread matching each picture card briefly shows what to look for in each painting, explains artists' materials, and reveals how they achieved special effects. Small details about the artists' lives bring these long-ago painters and sculptors to life for the reader. Whether read before or after a museum visit, this book and game will enhance one's understanding and apprecation of da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Fra Angelico, and Botticelli.
