Angela Wenzel is a museum educator at the Kunstsammlungen Nordrhein-Westfalen. She has written several works in the field of museum education as well as numerous art books for children.

Part of the ‘Children Should Know’ series, this compendium offers an engaging introduction into the world of sculpture. Children can encounter and consider a winged headless goddess, a gigantic tube of toothpaste, a tribal mask and a monumental bronze Buddha – sculptures that offer very different and equally important aspects of history of art.

Sculpture instantly draws children in, as they respond to the multitude of shapes, textures and colours of each work. This book takes a close look at thirteen of the most significant and fascinating pieces of sculpture: including pieces by Michelangelo, Rodin, and Niki de Saint Phalle, as well as others from around the world. Crafted from a vast array of materials, these works tell us about the culture and time in which they were created.

Each page is bursting with colourful images, and accessible information about the works and the artists who made them. Various games and puzzles enhance the learning experience for young readers in their introduction to three-dimensional masterpieces.
