Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
... this is one rainy-day book that will keep children hoping for more rain.
American Bookseller
... this is one rainy-day book that will keep children hoping for more rain.
Children's Literature
From cave paintings to Christo's wrapping art, this craft book will expose children to different art styles throughout the ages while encouraging their natural creativity. The first eleven sections are dedicated to a particular type of art. These include print making, abstract art, animals depicted in art, portraits, furniture, sculpture, art inspired by nature, and wearable art. In the "how to use this book" section at the beginning, a directory divides all the projects by time required, which will help with planning. It was unclear whether the time allowances included clean-up time. This section also outlines some safety guidelines, tips for collecting art/craft materials and a metric conversion table. Although the text is directed at the young reader, teachers, child-care workers and parents will also find this a valuable book, filled with ideas.
