Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art undergo scrutiny in Can You Find It? by Judith Cressy. The text prompts onlookers to investigate 19 paintings that each stretch across a spread and are abutted by vertical panels with color-coded lists of more than 150 items to locate. Peter Saul's View of San Francisco, Number 2, for example, challenges children to find "6 ships/ 3 palm trees/ 3 bridges/ 1 wiggly road/ 1 tunnel/ 3 pagodas/ 1 doughnut-shaped building/ & the number 76 twice." Back matter provides the answers and further information about each artist.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Nineteen paintings from New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art were chosen for careful scrutiny in this book. Next to each striking, full-color reproduction is a list of items to search for: e.g., "2 cats, 6 lotus blossoms, 3 eye amulets," etc., for a painting from ancient Egypt. The works of art are from around the globe and range from illuminated manuscripts to 20th-century canvases. Designed to encourage discovery, the tiny, sometimes indistinct details will keep children engrossed for hours. Fortunately, an answer key is appended. Every part of the book is utilized, including the title page and back cover. For an older audience than Lucy Micklethwait's "I Spy" series (Greenwillow), this lovely volume will be a popular and entertaining addition.-Robin L.

Kirkus Reviews
It’s Where’s Waldo for the sophisticated set when the Metropolitan Museum puts together a selection of paintings from its collection and asks readers to identify small details in each work of art. The choices are from a wide variety of styles and periods, with subjects ranging from richly clothed revelers in a 19th-century Spanish oil, to a 16th-century painting of the Prince of Wales, to the peasants in a Bruegel, to an Egyptian tomb painting. The painting Sweets, by Randall Deihl, in a hyper-realist style with shades of Hopper and a whimsical Peter Saul painting of a whacky San Francisco lend humor. But all the colorful, well-reproduced selections will prove irresistible to adults and children alike as they test each other’s observation skills. Bet on the kids, though, given the minuteness of some of the details. In fact, if you can see the white bird in the painting of young Louis XV, you should win a prize. A color-coded answer key appends the text. (Picture book. 5+)
