Synopsis

My Big Art Show A Card Game + Book - Collect Paintings to Win by Susie Hodge

This set of cards and its accompanying book form a lively art-exhibition game for children aged eight and over. Each card represents a work of art. As well as key information, such as artist and date, the cards also use symbols and colours to indicate which Movement and Theme the work represents. There are twelve Movements Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and Pop Art and six Themes People, Places, Objects, Animals, Story and Religion. The main card game resembles Rummy, and the aim is to be the first to put on a show (i.e. collect three and four of a kind). The game encourages children to become familiar with great art works and movements from the last five centuries, and helps them recognize the styles and themes that paintings share. The cards show reproductions of over fifty major works of art, and children collect these cards in the game to curate their own art show. The book supports the game by providing further information on the artworks and artists, answers to questions on the cards and alternative games to play. (Carries EU Toy Safety Directive 'CE' logo).

Reviews

Game play is easy for [a] 5-year-old, but there are some complex aspects that keep even the adults interested.

Sam Bateman and family

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.

Katie Lonsdale

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

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
