I Spy Two Eyes: Numbers in Artby Lucy Micklethwait
"A clever introduction to the world of fine art. Using the traditional 'I spy with my little eye' rhyme, the book asks readers to find the numbered details in each of 20 works of art. From 1 fly in Portrait of a Woman of the Hofer Family...to 20 angels in Botticelli's 'Mystic Nativity,' Children can study a wide variety of styles, periods, and techniques....This unusual concept book is a nice change for story hour, a good resource for art teachers, and an easy way to bring art and children together."--School Library Journal.

Meet the Author
Lucy Micklethwait says, "I began to play 'I Spy' with paintings with my own children when they were very young. Over and over again my children pointed out things which I had never noticed before—an apple that had fallen to the floor, a funny-shaped shoe, an expression on a face. Although we were simply 'looking at pictures,' I was well aware that, by making these paintings accessible, I was enabling my children to build up a store of images in their own minds which must inevitably lead to some interest in fine art." Ms. Micklethwait's books for children include I Spy Shapes in Art; I Spy: An Alphabet in Art; I Spy Two Eyes: Numbers in Art.
