Reviews

Extraordinarily useful and necessary for any class in art history! - Johanna Movassat, San Jose State University A step-by-step guide, incorporating both theory and practice, to critically thinking and writing about art. - Janet Carpenter, City College of San Francisco An extremely useful book for art history students at all levels of study. - Melissa Dabakis, Kenyon College I find the text to be fundamental in teaching students to write. It is concise enough to cover in a course on a particular art historical topic without overtaking the topic itself. It is always my secondary text. - Rebecca Trittel, Savannah College of Art and Design Excellent definitive source on writing about art for the advanced student. - Carey Rote, Texas A & M University-Corpus Christi

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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.
