This book is the fourth in Thomasson-Grant's "Come Look with Me" series, which includes Enjoying Art with Children (1991), Exploring Landscape Art with Children ( LJ 3/1/92), and Animals in Art (1992). World of Play presents 12 works of art featuring people at play. Each work is paired with questions meant to stimulate discussion, and background on each artist represented is given. The selected works, which include an ancient Minoan fresco, a classic Winslow Homer, and a wacky modern basketball game sculpted by Red Grooms in painted wood, represent a variety of styles, techniques, and artists. Written for individuals or small groups of children, this book may be used in the home, classroom, or library. It effectively teaches children a way of looking at art and encourages them to share their understanding with others. Both children and adults can enjoy this useful book in art appreciation. Recommended for school and public libraries.
