This is a neat twist on the old game I Spy. A complete art lesson is one simple picture book.
I would recommend this to kids ages 4-8 who are interested in art. It's great for children and parents to look at and discuss together.
This book grew out of a version of the kid's game "I Spy" the author played with her children--using paintings by renowned artists such as Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Andy Warhol.
"By making these paintings accessible," she writes, "I was enabling my children to build up a store of images in their own minds which must inevitably lead to some interest in fine art."
Whether or not that happens, it's still fun to locate various geometric shapes in the artwork, such as an oval in Paul Klee's "Around the Fish" or a heart in Fernand Leger's "Composition with Hand and Hats."

Another classroom book. We like to sit and play our own version of I Spy. Great for early math with threes.Published 22 months ago by jek-a-go-go
