Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

"We begin our world tour in Edo, Japan." In the voice of a gallery tour guide, Raczka introduces 13 famous works of art from across the world. On each spread, a beautiful full-page reproduction of each work appears along with chatty, interesting text offering background on the artist and suggestions of what to look for in the picture. The tour takes readers through different places and times as well as art forms. Included are spreads featuring Diego Rivera in Mexico, Ansel Adams in the U.S., and Gustave Caillebotte in Paris. Several of the pages feature European artists working in other continents: Paul Gaugin in Tahiti; Paul Klee in Tunisia. The beautiful cover picture is a map of the world made with embroidered cloth, a work that blends the cultures of Italy and Afghanistan. Part of Bob Razcka's Art Adventures series, this is an exciting way to introduce children to a wide range of artwork and to prepare them for a gallery visit. Rochman, Hazel --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From the Inside Flap

If you think planning a trip around the world would be difficult, imagine planning a trip back in time. Yet through the works of some of the world's most famous artists-and the guidance of Bob Raczka-you can pay a virtual visit to thirteen different places and times without leaving your chair!

The world tour begins in Japan, and then hops over to Australia, followed by a stop at the beautiful island of Tahiti. Eventually, you will visit six of Earth's seven continents. (Antarctica isn't much of a tourist spot unless you're a penguin!)

As your intrepid tour guide, Raczka offers fascinating facts about each destination, as well as the artists who worked there.

Format: Paperback
As a homeschooling mom using the Charlotte Mason approach to learning, I was THRILLED to get my hands on this book. The way that the author incorporates geographical locations, time periods, and information about the artwork and artists themselves it incredibly educational, and in an exciting way. My five year old is in love with this book and can't wait every night to 'travel' to the next location and read about that piece of artwork. I have to say that I'm a big fan already and this is my first book to read by this author. I highly recommend this book and can't wait to check out more of Bob Raczka's work!!

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 10 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)
* Joy in Mudville (Carolrhoda)
* Santa Clauses: Short Poems from the North Pole (Carolrhoda)
* Presidential Misadventures: Poems that Poke Fun at the Man in Charge (Roaring Brook)
