Can You Find It Inside? makes discovering art fun! After reading this book, young readers will be saying, "I spy great art!" Here's a seek-and-find book that invites youngsters to look at art in a special way: very closely!

Written in simple rhyme with major works form The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, this book asks children to take a close, closer and closest look at classic fine art at an early age.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Also produced in association with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Can You Find It Inside? and its companion Can You Find It Outside? both by Jessica Schulte encourage budding art enthusiasts to examine, in each volume, a baker's dozen famous works and discover more than 70 details. The rhyming texts invites young ones to "Look above, then look below,/ And count the grapefruits in a row" for Edward Hopper's Tables for Ladies (in Inside), and a couplet in Outside asks, "Can you find it? Can you see/ A distant sailboat out at sea?" for a Winslow Homer painting. Artwork ranges from the 17th century to the present, and many feature children. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

PreS-K-Two-line rhymes present clues to help young readers find details in paintings from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each painting, or portion of it, is matched with three couplets. Some flow smoothly, but others are a bit forced. The text accompanying Johannes Vermeer's Woman with a Lute reads, "Look around and be astute./Can you find a tuneful lute?/It's so easy-it's a snap!/Look above and find a map./Look way down, now just explore./Find the squares upon the floor." Readers search Andree Ruellan's Market Place with this clue: "Can you find him and reveal/a little boy and his pinwheel?" The paintings, by well-known artists from a variety of periods, styles, and countries, fill the pages opposite the text. The quality of the artwork varies; several reproductions are very dark. This, combined with the reduced size, makes some searches quite challenging. The books' conception is good, but the execution is somewhat weak.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
