Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Brooks’ goal is to convince her readers that art is not just something one observes, but rather something that one does. Using a topic beloved by many kids—animals—she presents 13 works by famous artists, each of which incorporates animals into its subject and theme. Each reproduced masterpiece occupies its own two-page spread, and Brooks explores one major art technique for each. It’s impossible not to be intrigued: “What’s the first thing you notice in this picture?” “Have you ever seen things in a dream that wouldn’t make sense in real life?” Turn the flap, and the art lesson waits beneath to offer a hands-on approach to each broad concept. For example, Matisse’s The Snail is accompanied by a project that explores drawing with scissors and finding patterns in creatures from nature. The projects range in difficulty from those with beginner’s skills to those suited for more experienced young artists. A diverse selection of works of art, from Degas to totem poles to Ming pottery, is included, and an introductory discussion of major movements in visual art is incorporated into each explanation. Brooks believes that a deeper appreciation of high art can be had by kids, and this revelatory offering encourages them to find it. Grades 3-6. --Erin Anderson
