Review:
Much more than an introduction to art appreciation, this beautifully reproduced book takes younger children on an art adventure through the ages and across the globe. The eclectic collection of paintings, drawings, sculpture and textiles uses both well-known and unknown artists to educate and entertain. The images are grouped by themes beginning with simple ideas such as Mother and Child and expanding to more difficult concepts like pattern. Engaging text, fun activities for during and after reading, and quizzes add to the excitement of the cultures and individuals who created the world of art.
