There are two things wrong with this book. The first I don't exactly blame on the editors, viz., the quality of the art on display. A large part of it is, not to put a fine word on it, crap. Way too much bad contemporary art. This is the sort of book that you'll buy if you want to expose your children to the notion that art can be all kinds of things, even heaps of garbage or candy. If you disagree, you'll have my reaction. On the other hand, it is a slice of our crazy old world, so we read it anyway. It would have been better to see more serious, high-quality art from throughout the ages, and for that, the editors can of course be blamed. Instead children are left with the impression that silly contemporary experimental art is on a par with the old masters. Gag me.
The second thing wrong with the book is the text. Sometimes (not very often, frankly) the text is actually thought-provoking, making some non-obvious and even essential remarks or questions about the art. But all too often it's downright inane or puerile (in a way not explicable by the fact that it's written for children). The discussion, such as it is, of "School of Athens" was very disappointing, asserting the painting shows "some of the greatest thinkers, mathematicians, scientists, geographers, artists, and inventors of all time." Well, in fact, they're mostly ancient Greek philosophers.Read more ›

I use this book (and part one) to teach my 4 year old son more about art (which he's passionate about, probably like a lot of children) - and I learn more in the process too :).Published 15 months ago by Mina
