Gr 2-6-In these series entries, a single topic is explored through a wide range of artwork. Themed spreads center on works by well-known artists such as Matisse, Monet, and Chagall, as well as on lesser-known figures. Questions guide students through art from a variety of countries, including Japan, India, France, and Mexico. Related projects give more understanding to the techniques; all of them include full-color reproductions of the work under discussion as well as art created by children. Answers to the questions and short paragraphs about the artists mentioned appear at the end. Classroom teachers and young artists will find these titles useful.-Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
