This is a clever book allowing children to learn about diverse architectural structures and styles, big and small... from the recognized Bilbao Guggenheim Art Museum in Spain to the utility of an igloo; from ancient Egypt, to Victorian interiors, and on to Green homes. Along with giving simply-stated interesting facts, young people have the opportunity to create and add personal touches by adding color enhancement to the illustrations, or to complete a partially developed drawing. Additionally, the book includes an array of artistic architectural concepts- doors knockers, furniture, decorative arts, lighting, houseboats, streetscapes, bridges, and more. I am a designer and arts educator, and I incorporate the ideas into classroom lessons. This book gets kids to think, draw, and dream. It's perfect for a classroom of many, or for one-on-one home use.
