I teach K - 5th art. Every year we have a 'What is Art' introduction. This book will fit in perfectly with that lesson. I brought the book into class and it is getting great reviews from my kids. They laugh out loud when they are reading it. The illustrations are wonderful. They are so vivid they seem to bounce off the page. Outstanding!!!
This book is both entertaining and educational. The illustrations are among the best I've ever seen. I¿ve read it out loud to my class and they loved it. My little girl loves this book she can't stop reading it ad now she is asking to go an art museum!
