Synopsis

Colours in Art by Lucy Micklethwait

A selection of fine art paintings from artists worldwide and throughout history, combined with a simple 'I Spy' game of spotting colours. A fun way to introduce children to fine art through concept-based play. I spy with my little eye...a red key a black cat a yellow sun Each magnificent painting in this book has a different coloured object for you to look for - some are easy, but some are difficult. And when you have found them all, there are lots of other interesting things to spot. Lucy Micklethwait has selected a wonderful range of fine art by painters including Magritte, Van Gogh, Miro and Chagall. With a gloriously reproduced piece of art on each spread, this title is the ultimate picture-puzzle challenge for children, making art accessible and fun.

Reviews

'Micklethwait's choice may be unorthodox but it makes sense (and allows parents the option of showing off: Little Pablo just adores Joaquin Torres-Garcia's Form, Structure and Objects ).'

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
