This entire series is an absolute MUST for any art teacher or parent interested in exposing their kids to art. It features a lot of paintings and art pieces that are not often seen, so the material is very fresh and relevant. Too many of these kids' art books show the same paintings over and over again, so this is a welcome change. The activities that the book presents in conjunction with each piece are unique and interesting, too. A great change of pace. The layout is great, the text is concise and informative without being too wordy, and the color prints of the artwork are a terrific size that spans two pages. BRAVO!
Love it, I used this for teh children's art program at school. It makes learning about art fun and very relateable for kids.
This book is great for children. I bought this book after renting it from the library and renewing it several times. There are many great and easy projects kids will love.
