The Lovereading4Kids comment

What do the people in pictures say? Look! Takes a close-up of view of 17 great paintings showing the little details which give clues to what the characters in the pictures are thinking, feeling and doing. Gillian Wolfe points out how much of a story each picture tells through close study of hands, faces and the special role of animals as friends. Looking at pictures will always be more fun after reading this book.
