PreSchool-K-Gibbons introduces the contents of an art box. From underneath the lid the basic tools emerge and are vividly displayed on colorful double-page spreads complemented by handmade paper borders. The uses for the tools are noted and illustrated on each page. Some additional supplies and equipment are also mentioned such as easels, canvas, and palettes. A simple explanation of primary and secondary colors rounds out this solid beginning to the creative world of art.

Ages 4^-8. Simplicity and clarity are the hallmarks of Gibbons' latest offering. Illustrations with clean lines and bright colors set against textured handmade papers show the tools and supplies of drawing and painting, the primary and secondary colors, and junior van Goghs in the act of artistic expression. The organization is logical, proceeding from the familiar to the less so (i.e., "paper" before "palette"), and the straightforward text combines boldface headings, captions, and succinct descriptions. The topic is a natural for most kids, and the treatment is solid. Julie Corsaro --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
