How to Use Child-size Masterpieces by Aline D. Wolf is a manual that enables adults, who need not be art experts, to present beautiful paintings to young children.

Dispensing with the words "Don't touch," which normally accompany the study of fine art, this program invites youngsters ages 3 through 12 to handle postcard-size reproductions (sold separately in the Child-Size Masterpieces books) in a delightful series of graded activities.

Step 1 - Matching identical paintings

Step 2 - Pairing two similar paintings by the same artist

Step 3 - Grouping four paintings by each of three artists

Step 4 - Learning the names of famous artists

Step 5 - Learning the names of famous paintings

Step 6 - Learning about the schools of art

Step 7 - Sorting schools of art

Step 8 - Placing paintings on a time line

This 70 page paperback is illustrated by Janine Sgrignoli Wolf.

About the Author

Aline D. Wolf has made the education of children the focus of her work throughout her adult years. Her efforts stemmed from her own life as a parent of nine children. When she and her husband became frustrated with the educational process in their area, they worked together to introduce what was then a fairly new method of education--the Montessori Method.

At that time, Montessori's works were not well known in the U.S., were poorly translated and full of repetition. Aline wanted to share with other American parents the gems of wisdom she discovered in Montessori's writings, so she interpreted the words of Montessori in smoother English and combined them with modern photographs. The result was a groundbreaking book titled A Parents' Guide to the Montessori Classroom that has sold over 600,000 copies.

Widely recognized as a renowned modern interpreter of Maria Montessori's philosophy and methods, Aline's publications through Parent Child Press have provided innovations on Montessori's original work--particularly in art appreciation and nurturing the spirit of children. She cites her book, Nurturing the Spirit in Non-Sectarian Classrooms, as her most significant accomplishment to date, because the pivotal work has influenced not only the Montessori movement worldwide, but also many teachers in non-Montessori schools.
