Art is more than paintings. Teach your child! Jan. 21 2005
By Allison - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been looking for simple books to introduce my preschooler to Art (with a capital A). Most kids in preschool have plenty of opportunities to express their creativity in craft projects, but explaining "Art" to a child is daunting. This book is a fantastic starting point. It features brief, rhyming statements about what "Art is." Each page features a different form of visual art from sculpture to painting to textiles to folk art to architecture to monumental pieces. Styles range all over the map, and many examples are by well-known artists. They have chosen pieces that are eye-catching for a toddler or young child.

My son is 4 and actually resisted looking at the book at first because of the very "grown up" looking cover, but once he saw the first page with the op-art piece "Fall," he was hooked. This is a wonderful picture book, best read aloud by an enthusiastic parent or caregiver. I love that it shows a wide range of art forms. It can help expand a child's horizons and encourage exploration and creativity. In addition to being a good discussion starter, the book can be the basis for games like looking for art in the places you visit and in the books you read. Best of all, it's a lot of fun to read.

I use this book because a friend/teacher of art integration recommended it. It is a great way to broaden the scope of what students consider Art to be. It helps them get away from the "art is a picture in the museum" idea. Not only that, it has some fascinating things in it. I recently saw another type (much thicker) in an art museum gift shop. I do like the size of this. I scanned it and made a power point out of it as I read it to my class. Very effective.

After Raczka's book, "NO ONE SAW," I was excited to receive this book. I was somewhat disappointed with this one, however.

Great book = used it with my middle school art classes and they loved it. It was a great starter for art history.

This is a great book. In fact, alll of Bob Raczka's books are excellent! I wish he would put them into a single volume that could be ordered as a textbook for entry level art courses. They are aimed at children but older students with limited or no experience would benefit from these and a single volume would be fantastic!
