Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Some of the most beautiful art in America is found between the covers of children's books. Certainly that is one way that adults introduce children to art, but there has been a recent explosion in the market of children's books about art. Their expression varies from preparing for museum experiences to experiencing art itself. One of the ways adults can introduce children to art is by revealing the real lives of the people who create art. Children who are beginning to read can begin to learn to art with "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series which now has nearly two dozen titles featuring artists such as Diego Rivera, Mary Cassatt, Renoir and Dali.
