The content is aimed at an understanding and appreciation of children and their art products. It is not the making of products that is the concern of this book, but rather it is the process of art and the value of these experiences to children's learning that is crucial. It is fascinating to realize that as children grow and experience the world in both physical and psychological settings, their physical, mental, and creative growth also change.
