“The children's book of art”
This book provides children with a fantastic introduction to the many great artists. It has bright colourful pictures and is informative without being too complicated.I would highly recommend this book as a must-have teaching resource for children aged 6 years+.
“A good value, sound introduction to art, which KS2 children can read for themselves. Big reproductions, fascinating facts and Internet links are included.”
“Written in consultation with art historian Dr Erika Langmuir, this bright and bold introduction to art will have children dragging their parents around the galleries! With more than 30 of the world's most celebrated works of art, beautifully illustrated, plus cartoons and illustrations galore, all clearly and cheerfully presented. This will become a well-loved favourite.”
