A perfect introduction to art for parents and children to enjoy together... Simple, clear and fun. -The Guardian The Art Book For Children draws young readers first into the subject, then deftly into the form, of paintings from the Mona Lisa to Warhol's Marilyn Monroe. -The Times Stylish, and exciting without being silly. -Sunday Times Culture Stylish, welcoming introduction to art... The book is bursting with exuberant questions... and determined to open young eyes and minds. -The Observer A fine sourcebook
