About the Editor

Margaret E. Hyde was inspired to create the Great Art for Kids books 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, Mrs. Hyde designed these durable board books to introduce young children to the great painters. A native of Memphis, Mrs. Hyde now lives in Santa Monica with her family.

Other titles in the Great Art for Kids Series are Cassatt for Kids, Impressionists for Kids, Matisse for Kids, Picasso for Kids, and Renoir for Kids ($8.95 each),
all available from Pelican.
