Description: "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.... 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."--Parents' Choice "The samples of artwork are from a wide range of time periods and cultures; medieval and Aboriginal art are included as well as examples of pop, impressionistic, and surrealistic art.... Wolfe's emphasis is to persuade readers to bring their own experiences to their understanding of art.... In this way, those new to looking at art will begin to trust their own interpretations of what they see, instead of feeling intimidated or in need of expert explanation. Large, attractive reproductions invite readers to linger over the pages."--Kirkus Reviews "An abundantly illustrated introduction... Kids can find inspiration in the images drawn from a wide array of cultures and periods, and questions invite thoughtful study of the paintings, drawings, weavings, and sculptures."--Publishers Weekly "First-rate... a thoughtful text...with excellent reproductions."--Booklist "Wolfe uses examples that children will understand, such as the gentleness and tenderness between "Mother and Child" depicted in Mary Cassatt'sThe Child's Bath.... Clear, full-color reproductions and photographs illustrate the text. A volume to spark children's imaginations and their interest in art."--School Library Journal
