Preschool Art is a lifesaver . . . All the activities are easy, all are fun. . . a real find. -- Sesame Street Parents, Picks for Parents<br \><br \>Preschool Art, by MaryAnn Kohl, offers help to parents of preschoolers struggling to meet the challenge of their children's creative impulses. Prodigies aside, most kids this age aren't interested in the final product; they are into the doing of art.
There is no right or wrong way, only their way. Kohl understands. She explains how to make and use many kinds of art materials based on the concept that the process not the product, is important. From old standbys like play dough to new craft discoveries like liquid crayons and frozen balloons, she provides hundreds of ways to enjoy and explore the creative process. -- MetroParent, Milwaukee, Wisconsin<br \><br \>This is a very organized, thorough assembling of preschool art activities that could be a valuable asset to any preschool teacher as well as individual interested in doing art with young children . . . I can see this book becoming my primary art resource. --Tot Spot Coordinator, Discovery Center Museum
We found the book very well put together, easy to use and the instructions complete and easy to follow. . . . --Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia
Young children do art for the experience, the exploration and the experimentation. It's a process by which they can discover the world. . . Using materials commonly found in the home, child care or preschool program, children can explore discover and create open-ended art experiences.

Each activity has up to five icons Age, planning/Preparation, Help, Caution, and author's Favorite which serve as a guide for making the projects more usable and accessible for the artist, caregiver, teacher or parent. --Family Times

I now buy this book as gifts for parents with preschoolers.
What I appreciate most about this book can be found in the author's Special Note (she even allows you to duplicate it!) Here the foundation is laid...it's the process and not the finished product. You can learn as much through the materials as you can from the art you and the kids create. If I'm teaching an idea, the heart of this book certainly helps me convey my message to my students. The layout of each art experience is presented in a clear way and the use of icons is helpful in deciding which craft is age and time appropriate. Hey, I even taught words and concepts using each "recipe".
As a teaching aid, I give this book a definite "thumbs up".
