Product Description

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.

    This is a beautiful book! I love the bits of information on the artist on the right side of the page and the full colour illustrations on the left, and even a few questions to ask the child. Excellent!
