"This book has wonderful ideas for children to explore the elements of art in the environment they are in." said.

"This is a wonderful resource for pre-school teachers! It is filled with many wonderful ideas and projects. I used it as part of an art appreciation theme and found it extremely helpful. I'd recommend it!" said.

"i am writing a new curriculum with a co-worker for a preschool art class ... this book helps teach each element of art ... great starting point for ideas!" said.

"I recently purchased this book to use at home with my 6 year old and am so excited about it. I love the way the book is organized. Each assignment is very detailed and actually tells you how to teach the assignment (like specifically what to tell the kids). Whereas, the other art books I own are full of really great project ideas but don't go into depth on the style,form, etc. I also love the fact that she gives ideas of artists to display with the assignment and even tells specific pieces that would correspond best making it a great way to tie in art appreciation. Great buy, highly recommend." said.

"I have been teaching preschool for the last six years and have seen many art books but this book stands above any I have seen. This book does an excellent job of giving examples of art work by famous artist and the activities are not crafts. The activities in this book actually focus on the PROCESS of the art not what it looks like in the end. I am so excited to get back to school and start using this book in my classroom. I will also be sharing it with the other early childhood teachers in my building. Fantastic and worth every penny!" said.

"I am returning this book. It is all in black and white. Additionally, there are not many pictures of the completed artwork or any of the steps. Most of the pages have handprints in the margins or the bottom even if the artwork is about other topics such as sand painting. The remaining pages have small illustrations of children making the art. While some of the activities are interesting, the book is not visually appealing at all, which is strange for an art book." said.

"I use this book as a basis for my Art Appreciation unit with my 3-4 year-olds. Awesome information on artists, and ways for the kids to mimic their styles." said.

"I have enjoyed using this book with my kids. Yes it is in black and white and does require reading but it has a lot of great idea." said.
