Gr. 2-4. Like the previous volumes by Judith Cressy in the Can You Find It? series, published in conjunction with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this book has children look for specific items in a series of paintings. Unlike the previous volumes, in which a simple text on each spread lists things to pick out of the paintings, here rhymed couplets pose questions for children to answer. It would be easy to dismiss a book with rhymes like "Can you find it? Do you see? / A chicken perches by a tree. / Not so far, now look nearby / And see a horse who's staying dry. / Now get ready and get set / To find a wagon getting wet." On the other hand, it's hard to pass up a book with thirteen fine paintings that are accessible to children, beautifully reproduced, and (many of them) not often found in art books for young people. And unlike its companion, Schulte's Can You Find It Inside? it even includes a few nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century paintings of black and Asian subjects. On the last three pages, a small color reproduction of each picture appears along with information identifying the painting and the artist. Carolyn Phelan

He went through the book with Grandma, finding the items I named from the text and then also finding items I noticed and named on my own from the picture. Then he immediately took the book to Grandpa to repeat the process. All three of us loved seeing the art work and watching for details. And the pictures have vivid enough colors to be easy on the eye (in contrast to other reviews of the "Can You Find It Inside" companion).
As our little guy grows, we'll use the concepts for helping him learn to add "hidden" details to his own art.
