Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
The Art Pack success of a few seasons ago has sifted down to kids' level with Van der Meer's repeat of the concept. It's still just as much fun. Lift-the-flaps show how art is made, from woodcuts to bronze sculptures. Three-dimensional pop-ups display Vermeer, Vel�squez, and an Alexander Calder mobile. The idea of style is explained by comparing D�rer's highly realistic "Hare" (1510) with Picasso's cubist "Rooster" (1938.) The overview is an interesting combination of both classic and eclectic art. If actually read as well as played with, quite a lot about the subject can be learned enjoyably from this book.
