great for art appreciation

This is an easy way to teach art appreciation to children, even very young ones, and you can follow up with a trip to an art museum.

Two boys' review: Investigative looking and thinking

You've heard the saying before but this book "helps art come alive." My two sons, ages 6 and 4, were enthralled by the artwork. The secret to this book is on the back page, where author Gladys Blizzard offers these simple, yet essential directions: Look at all the paintings again. Choose the one that has your favorite colors. Choose the one that makes you feel happiest. Choose the one that makes you feel most frightened. Choose the one you would most like to hike in. Choose the one you would most like to bike in. Choose the one you would most like to live in. On another day, do this again. What you see, think, and feel may be different. And then keep looking! ----------------------------- This is our first experience with the "Come Look With Me" series of books. We fully intend to delve deeper and check out Come Look with Me: Enjoying Art with Children and Come Look With Me: Animals in Art. As a final note, it was "Day and Night" by M.C. Escher and "The Oregon Trail" by Albert Bierstadt that interested my boys most.

Nicely done

All types of art and artists with questions to start conversation about the piece. Great for the elementary age.

Exploring Landscape Art With Children

I am a docent at an art museum and the goal is to get children develop a love of art. This book is exactly what will assist a child to enjoy art.
