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 ).'

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

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!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!
