My two girls are 3 yrs old and 18 months old and they both love touching this book!
Little Lana's Mommy
The lettuce hanging out of the hamburger and the fuzzy "o" and the lid on the soup can are the best features.
J. Smith
I love books that help introduce kids to art in ways that are colorful, inviting, and fun.

This is a great concept! Famous works of art are made more approachable by use of touch and feel! We love all the books in this series. My two girls are 3 yrs old and 18 months old and they both love touching this book!
This book includes:
Campbell's Soup Can- Andy Warhol
Untitled- Keith Haring (red, blue and green figures dancing)
Girl with Ball- Roy Lichtenstein
Two Cheeseburgers with Everything- Claes Oldenburg
The Woodcut Bathrobe- Jim Dine
Cakes- Wayne Thiebaud
Marilyn- Andy Warhol
Love, Indiana Stable May 66- Robert Indiana
Mustard on White- Roy Lichtenstein
At the end of the book the authors have included a short paragraph about each work of art and the artist who created it, which is great for me since I never knew much about modern art.
As with all the books in this series, the artwork is the main event- don't buy these books for the great literary prose- you'll be disappointed there. But the great art really makes up for it! You will be so engrossed by the artwork and the touch and feel that the lack of creative prose wont bother you!
These books are great for kids and their parents! The famous works of art make touch and feel books more interesting for the parents, and the fun tactile elements make art education books more fun for the kids!

I bought all of the books in this series for my nine-year-old son who is autistic. His skill set and sensory issues are all over the place, so it is nice to find a series of books with lots of tactile opportunities and simple reading but that are more sophisticated than the usual "touch and feel" board books for babies.

This interactive book is fine and fun, with one little glitch. Warhol's soup can has a moveable lid that is one of the better features of all those in the book. The problem is that it is attached by a flimsy tag of cardboard, and if the child rotates the lid too many times (or in a complete 360) the lid breaks off entirely. I re-attached ours using a small grommet kit, but what a pain. So, buy the book ... but be careful not to completely pop Warhol's top!

This was the first book I purchased for my nephew in the Touch the Art series. The collection of artwork is wonderful, and the "touch" parts of each page are different and ingenious. The problem I have with this book is that while the rhymes with each work are too silly and pandering for anyone but toddlers, some of the features are too fragile to last long with their little hands. For example, the first page is the Campbell's can on the cover, and the paper lid moves up and down. My nephew (14 months) sat on my lap to look at it, I showed him how it moved, and he effortlessly ripped it off.

Although it only took my 12 month old 4 tries to literally pop Warhol's top right off the page (that is, damaging it, but oh well), I like this book because it exposes him to artwork at a young age. I don't have to take him to the museum. He loves Marilyn's eyelash and all the other pages. I don't think I'll go through the trouble of putting the pop can lid back on. He won't miss it.
Anyway I think it's a great book. I studied art history and it's important to show children art. I wanted to review this because I felt it needed defending....several other reviews on here dissed the book's rhymes. I must say that I enjoy the fanciful, lighthearted words on each page. It could be because my son is only 1 yr old. But why would a book have to make up some intelligent plot line, connecting unrelated pieces of art together? It's a picture book, not a story book. It's a book about art, not a book about literature. Stop over-critiquing and enjoy it for what it is. My son loves it.

The rhyming in this one is great... I've ordered or borrowed from the library several of these books, and I'd say the best ones we've read are:

Pop Warhol's Top
Make Van Gogh's Bed
Tickle Tut's Toes

The disappointing one was Brush Mona Lisa's Hair, and Feed Matissa's Fish was just okay.

Anyway, the colours in Pop Warhol's Top are bold and vibrant and the touch-and-feel elements, while small compared to the overall paintings, are fun to feel for and discover. I was an art history student in college, so reading these books to my 18 month old son is a pleasure.

My child has LOVED this book for the last three months (8-11 months old). The pictures are great. She loves to touch the objects that are meant to be touched in the book. The book is different, in a good way, from other books and I love that it is introducing art to my child.
