" Child friendly way to introduce children to art. What I don't like is that it almost tells the child too much... interpreting the paintings for them. " said.

" I would use this book to talk about faces and emotions. I mainly liked this book in the series because it was Picasso and accessible to children, but the plot works unlike some of the others in the series and I like that it leans towards a child-centric top of importance: empathy. " said.

"One in a series of board books for kids that use the works of master painters as illustrations. We had a handful of them, and they were quite welcome when our son was bitty because they added variety and quality to the art we were looking at in books. Painting with Picasso, though, stands out among them because it starts inviting the young reader to consider not just the paintings themselves, but also the stories behind the paintings and the existence and role of the artist in bringing these paintings into existence." said.

"This is one book in a series that introduces children to the great art masters. It shows a few pieces (around 10) from the artist and pairs it with rhyming phrases. These books were fun to read and, obviously, great to look at. They come in board book form and are on the smaller side so they are great for little hands, but even my older children loved looking through them.

One semi-negative comment I have is that some of the phrases that accompany each painting tell the reader too much which doesn't let the reader come up with their own meaning and interpretation of the painting. This doesn't happen with each painting or in every book. Some of the phrases are more ambiguous. I guess the easy remedy for this would be to not read the text to your child and just ask questions and have discussions about each picture.

Overall, this is a great series and I highly recommend them.
