Praise for The Museum
"Verde and Reynolds deliver a simple premise with a charming payoff this “twirly-whirly” homage to a museum is, on balance, a sweet-natured and handsome celebration."
"Debut author Verde makes an engaging case for understanding art as an experience rather than an object."
"The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art.”
"Communicates a fresh, playful, childlike perspective on art and normalizes childlike responses to it. The idea that posing, laughing, and curious questions are all appropriate museum behavior may be a new one for both children and parents, and knowing this is sure to make for more enjoyable museum visits."
—School Library Journal
"For parents who have trouble communicating the excitement of art to their children, The Museum can serve as the starting point for a conversation. The book is also a wonderful reminder of visual art’s power to encourage and empower self-expression. Children and adults will finish this book excited about their next art experience, and perhaps tempted to dance through the halls of a museum in the near future."
"This playful picture book pays tribute to the joyous effect art can have on the viewer."
