Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
This exceptional art book, part of Heinemann-Raintree's "Start with Art" series, takes readers through the world of masks and face painting. The first chapter opens with a basic description of the subject matter ("What Are Masks and Face Painting?") and continues with historical and practical information. Each page spread has a large colorful photograph. Chapter headings, formatted as questions, encourage readers to ask additional questions. Other chapters are "How Do People Make Masks?," "What Can Masks Show?," "What Can Face Painting Show?," and "How Do Masks and Face Paints Make Us Feel?," while the final chapter invites readers to "Start to Make Masks!" Step-by-step illustrated instructions enable children to create their own version of an Aztec mosaic mask. Glossary words are printed in bold throughout, and an illustrated seven-word glossary rounds out the book. Colorful feathers, paints, and papier-mache are just some of the exciting materials featured throughout this informative and delightful book. A fine addition to a classroom library, this is well-suited to young artists and reluctant readers alike. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
