Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-These thematically organized books employ three types of participatory gimmicks, each set off from the main text in its own color box-blue for ``information,'' yellow for ``activity,'' and violet for ``look and see.'' There are also running columns of descriptive text and extended captions for the full-color reproductions. The visual result is a hodgepodge of page design that makes coherent reading difficult. More annoying are the factual errors, e.g., the oversimplified and misleading description of how a bronze sculpture is made. Also frustrating are commands to examine details in extremely small reproductions. The simplistic directions for studio activities fail to provide more than the barest bones of instruction for complex products. Series such as ``Looking at Paintings'' (Hyperion) and ``The Story in a Picture'' (Ideals) offer much better information for appreciating art, have easier-to-read formats, and are free of invitations to engage in busy work.-Kenneth Marantz, Art Education Department, Ohio State University, Columbus
