Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—This seek-and-find book features 20 examples of American art from the Metropolitan Museum, ranging from paintings to prints and quilts. Most of the clear, color reproductions focus on part of a work. Each picture is accompanied by a list of items to be found in it. The colors of the numerals ("4 dogs, 1 open window, 2 produce stands") are cleverly employed in dots on small black-and-white images at the end of the book, revealing the locations of the objects. The only shortcoming is that these illustrations are so small that readers may need a magnifying glass to peruse them. Additional information about each piece is included here as well. One goal of this seek-and-find is to teach children to look at art and observe its many details, encouraging them to play "Can You Find It?" whenever they visit a museum. This book will be a success with fans of art and puzzles alike.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO
Kirkus Reviews
This latest entry in the popular Can You Find It? series draws its lively and accessible images from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Between the pages kids will find a wealth of such uniquely American icons as Emanuel Leutze's Washington Crossing the Delaware, Thomas Hoveden's affecting The Last Moments of John Brown and Grandma Moses's homey Thanksgiving Turkey. Lovers of more contemporary art will enjoy sharing The Photographer, by Jacob Lawrence, Red Grooms's quirky street scene, Chance Encounter at 3 A.M., and textile artist Faith Ringgold's vibrant Story Quilt. Falken easily embraces the now-familiar by-the-numbers approach to the text: "Can you find 1 saxophone, 4 taxicabs . . . " etc. While some of the paintings and the "hidden" objects are easier than others to decipher, by book's end child readers will have become practiced in looking at and thinking about the details among the widely divergent styles and schools of American art, and their grown-ups will have learned a great new way to engage children in the arts. A terrific entry in a reliable, handsome and affordable series. (Picture book. 4-8)

    Give the kids a little art education while they are having fun!

    We have other "Can You Find It?" series books and we love them all. These are a nice change from the "I Spy" series and do offer some art history along with the fun. My 12 yr old and 9 yr old both enjoy them. It is a nice way to pass a rainy day or sitting at the doctor's office. They can also do this activity with grandparents that have a hard time keeping up with energetic kids, otherwise. So enjoy!
