The Children's Book of Art (HB)

(0)Review Product

This engaging guide takes children on a whirlwind international tour of the world’s greatest art. This fun-filled compendium takes in art from all different periods and styles: from prehistoric cave paintings to contemporary performance art, taking in the most influential art movements to alter the course of art history, from Renaissance to Rococo and beyond, and all the great artists from across these eras.

This guide takes a novel approach to art that is easily readable for young readers, by looking at art as an international exchange of ideas rather than a strict and overly straightforward history of western art.

The book takes an inclusive approach: aboriginal art is viewed side by side with Miro’s Carnival of the Harlequin and Michelangelo; totem poles are considered alongside Warhol and street-art given equal space to Jackson Pollock. The Children’s Book of Art features the finest art the world has ever seen with fun facts, engaging children and adults alike and encouraging its young readers to create their own art with fun activity suggestions.

“Written with art lovers in mind, this condensed work of artistry is best described as a museum in a book.” – Laura Panter, VOYA
