Product description


"Phaidon Publishing produce some of the most gorgeous and desirable board books on the planet... like this utter beauty... It's entirely suitable for a huge range of ages right down to the tiniest of tinies... It works on so many levels, this. A perfect book to save for Valentines day, or just absolutely brilliant for being a nice stepping stone for your little ones to give them an appreciation for art and artists in a really cool and lovely way."—Read it Daddy

"Oh did it make me smile. I think it is really a wonderful way to introduce children to some of the world's finest ever artists and their iconic works. Beautifully done. This is a book to keep forever. A stunning gift for a child you want to introduce to art. To be honest though I also think this is also a beautiful love token for any age. Simply lovely."—Simple Parenting

"We have been looking at some very grown up fine art pictures made beautifully simplistic and contextual for children in the new nonfiction book from Phaidon called My Art Book of Love... This clever book uses famous works of art through the ages to try to convey a true meaning of Love in a way children can understand."—

"...Artful meditation on visual portrayals of love."—Publishers Weekly

"Don't be surprised if you feel a flutter of the heart upon opening the cover of My Art Book of Love. Page after page of gloriously reproduced paintings from thirty-four artists from the past and working today demonstrate love in all of its actions, forms, colors, and meanings... Exquisitely curated to offer a range of artistic styles, cultural touchstones, and emotional responses, My Art Book of Love is a sophisticated board book that is part museum, part love letter and a completely original and moving way to share and talk about love with babies, toddlers and older kids during quiet, cuddly story times. The book can also be used in classrooms to accompany reading, writing, and art lessons. The book makes an inspired choice as a gift or to add to any home, classroom, and public library."—Celebrate Picture Books blog

"This gorgeous, luxurious-feeling board book for toddlers and preschoolers explains how love makes us feel by introducing great works by diverse artists including Mary Cassatt, Fernando Botero, Marc Chagall and Amy Sherald."—The New York Times

"Expertly curated... The paintings include[d] on these pages aren't the usual suspects and, as a result, the book is kind of amazing."—School Library Journal/A Fuse Eight Production

"Toddlers and pre-schoolers will connect their own experiences of love with those they see on canvas in these 35 full-page artworks with a gentle read-aloud text."—East Bay Express

"My Art Book of Love combines two essential and mysterious concepts - art and love - into a beautiful tome that speaks to art lovers of all ages... A fantastic introduction to fine art for the next generation of art lovers."—Yahoo Lifestyle

"...An engaging way to teach kids about the connections between art and emotion."—Business Insider

"Many young children have never visited an art museum or flipped through a book of fine art. This browsing book-with a lovely hard cover and stiff board book pages-is a wonderful introduction... Immediately compelling... A book to enjoy over and over."—The Reading Chair

"An expansive and multicultural collection... This exploration makes each piece of art immediately compelling. This is a book to enjoy over and over."—Young Children

"Works of fine art are paired with lyrical prose all about love. My toddler has a favourite page: the painting of Slow Dance by Kerry James Marshall. Whenever she gets to that page she starts dancing and it's adorable."—Book Riot
