The Lovereading4Kids comment

This title is part of the absolutely excellent MY VERY FIRST ART series from Usborne. This title and its sister titles in the series are a great introduction for young children to art and this one is particuarly good in introducing some of the world's most famous artworks even to chidlren as young as 3 or 4. Paintings have been especially chosen to appeal to this age group and each is accompanied by interesting facts about the artist and the ways in which they worked. 'Try it yourself' sections suggest ways in which young children can experiment with different mediums and techniques to create something themselves.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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.

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!
