Overview

The striking, vibrant paintings of Picasso are perfect for engaging developing minds while fostering children's love of art. In this board book, Picasso's experimentation with geometry in cubist masterpieces such as Head and Woman with a Blue Beret and Fur Collar are showcased in full-color reproductions alongside seven other works depicting families, children, and circus scenes. Picasso is only one artist represented in the six-book series entitled Great Art for Kids. Stressing the value of art appreciation, the series provides artistic pieces in a toddler-friendly board-book format. A parents' guide in the back of the book provides interesting facts about the artist's life and works, as well as projects for child prodigies.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Five large square board books now being published by Pelican (previously published by Budding Artists Inc.) feature child-friendly works by acclaimed artists as part of the Great Art for Kids series, edited by Margaret E. Hyde. In perhaps the most accessible title for a young audience, Cassatt for Kids presents 12 tender scenes of children at rest and at play. Each book offers no text other than the painting's title and, in small type, its location, medium, year of completion and size. Other painters featured: Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and Van Gogh.

Meet the Author

Margaret E. Hyde was inspired to create the Great Art for Kids Series when she could not find age-appropriate art books for her own little girl. As an alternative to having her expensive coffee-table books drooled on, Hyde designed these durable board books to introduce young children to the great painters. A native of Memphis, Hyde lives in Santa Monica with her family.
