" Really imaginative and creative way of discussing influential. The tone is conversational but doesn't talk down to kids or over their heads. " said.

" Great book, but disappointed that only 2 out of the 30 artists are women. " said.

" Full of some really nice ideas to help children access and think about famous art works and artists. " said.

" I read this to my children. Absolutely brilliant. Each chapter is just a few paragraphs and explains the artists methods, intent and work succinctly and in a way that is easy for a four year old to understand. " said.

" Yup: kids' book! I add it because it caught my eye at a tag sale, I started flipping through, and bought it and read/viewed it. I'm hardly new to enjoying art but I expect I will look differently hereon. " said.

" Didn't care for this as much as other art books I've looked at that were "all-inclusive" Seemed random, though it asked really good questions about each art piece. It makes you think, but isn't outlined and presented as a whole understanding of art. (discussion more oriented for older little kids...not 4-6 year olds) " said.

" My search for an art book for my kids ends here. At 75 pages, this book is substantial, has great images and is child-appropriate. I also like the way the (unnamed) author involves the reader in the art, asking children to use their imagination to wonder about why artists created things they way they did. " said.

"A wonderful introduction to the expansive world of art through the works of thirty artists. Simple, interesting and informative text accompany the works of art. Each artist is introduced through fun titles that mimic some aspect of their work. For instance, Cindy Sherman's section is entitled "Dressing Up," in reference to the wide array of characters she transforms into for her trademark photographs. Each artist's works also include engaging questions, such as the Vincent Van Gogh inspired, "How do you sign your paintings?" (He signed his with "Vincent".) The dates of the works aren't listed until the end of the book, which would be problematic except for the fact that the book is introductory in scope. An appropriate introduction to the art world for all ages, and a must for elementary and middle school libraries. I plan to read this to the children in my life!" said.
