Come Look with Me: World of Play is no dry discourse on art history or painting technique. Instead, it pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging the child to enter the painting or sculpture and explore it through the artist's eyes, through the eyes of the people depicted, and through the child's own imagination.

Author, Gladys S. Blizzard has chosen twelve fascinating works of art which, although diverse, all fall into the most child-friendly of themes, people at play. Works range from an ancient Minano fresco and a classic Winslow Homer to a wacky modern basketball game sculpted by Red Grooms in painted wood.

Each work of art is paired with simple, open-ended questions and a brief background on the artist and his or her work. This provides adults with added understanding and a basis for further discussion.

This book can be shared by adults and students at home, in the classroom, in a library or museum. Wherever the setting, readers will enjoy this new way of looking at art. 32 pages, hardcover. Ages 6 and up.

Few subjects have more immediate appeal to children than animals, and few methods of teaching students to appreciate fine art have proven more successful than those of educator Gladys S. Blizzard. In Come Look with Me: Animals in Art, she makes the most of children's natural curiosity about animals to introduce them not only to 12 magnificent works of art, but also to a whole new way of encountering art. Using an approach which is fun as is effective, the author deftly guides her young audience toward their own understanding of and delight in the world of art.

The works featured in Animals in Art represent a variety of styles which students will encounter again in museums and in books. They also represent an intriguing menagerie of beasts, from the mysterious deer and horses stampeding across the wall of Lascaux cave to Paul Klee's whimsical heart-nosed cat dreaming of a bird.

Each work is accompanied by a brief biological sketch of the artist and a series of open-ended questions designed to encourage discussion. Through her thought-provoking text, Mrs. Blizzard encourages children to imagine themselves in the painting. 32 pages, 12 full-color reproductions. Ages 5 and up.
