Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 4-8. Illustrated with famous twentieth-century works by such artists as Georgia O'Keefe, Rene Magritte, and Grant Wood, this singsong poem gets to the heart of what artists do: create unique perspectives of the world. Next to each masterpiece, a line from the book's poem invites children to look closely at the artist's version of everyday images in the painting: "No one saw stars like Vincent van Gogh"; "No one saw people like Joan Miro." With a few exceptions, the reproductions are clear, and the lines scan well. The spare design and minimal words put the emphasis on the art, offering children a chance to enjoy and become familiar with the images, without didactic text. Best, though, is the inspiring conclusion, reminding children that they, too, have unique ideas to share: "Artists express their own point of view. And nobody sees the world like you."

Review

"An art teacher would find this a useful book for introducing artists and their work to a primary audience." -- Library Talk

"The selections serve the impressionist through modern works well and conclude that 'nobody sees the world like you.'" -- The Horn Book Guide

More About the Author

My wife Amy and I are the co-creators of three masterpieces: Robert, Carl and Emma. We live in Glen Ellyn, Illinois with our eight year-old mutt, Rufus, who is also a piece of work.

I was born in Chicago, the oldest of four boys, and grew up in the suburb of Des Plaines. As a kid I loved to draw. I was also into making balsa wood airplanes and model rockets. My favorite sport has always been baseball.

Bob Raczka's Art Adventures is my ongoing nonfiction series published by The Millbrook Press. There are currently 14 books in the series. The latest, called Before They Were Famous: How Seven Artists Got Their Start, is a Junior Library Guild selection.

I've also written a series of four books about the seasons, published by Albert Whitman: Spring Things, Summer Wonders, Who Loves the Fall? and Snowy Blowy Winter.

My current love is writing children's poetry. My poetry titles include Guyku: A Year of Haiku for Boys (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), Lemonade and Other Poems Squeezed from a Single Word (Roaring Brook), Fall Mixed Up (Carolrhoda), and Joy in Mudville: A Casey Sequel (Carolrhoda, Spring 2013).

As a mom of a preschooler (and baby), I'm always looking for ways to expose my 3-year-old son to great art without boring him, and this book is perfect! I've bought other art-related kids books, and they were not captivating like this one is. The text has gentle rhyme, and my son really got into the different paintings. The "Biographical Notes" section has more information on the artists if you've forgotten your college Art History (like me!), and my son found it interesting, too. I really liked the message at the end of the book, "...And nobody sees the world like you." I plan on making this book my new gift for everyone -- for new babies, for my son's friends' birthday gifts, holidays, etc. It would be great for kids of all ages, really. You will love this book!
