One of the original books in the "Enjoying Great Art" series, but now bigger and better:
Hats - ordinary things we see every day...But are they always ordinary?
Here is a picture book for students of all ages...A picture book of hats and other head coverings! Different styles, colors, shapes, and sizes...Some worn by men, some by women, and some by children...Many representing status or station in life...Some that look like they are just being worn for the fun of it.
Look through the paintings that span many centuries and come from different parts of the globe. Notice the similarities and the differences...See the colors, the textures and patterns. Observe whether the hats seem to be a primary focus of the painting, or merely a smaller, insignificant portion.
But, most of all, enjoy!

About the Author
This series started simply: a few books to introduce children to art and artists they might not have known - all arranged along a single theme (first hats, then with animals, then bridges, and so it went). Before long she had multiplied her efforts and her books, all the while introducing not just her students, but also many adults to the vast array of artwork that so many of us sadly neglect.
