Synopsis

Mosaics by Nathaniel Harris

Featuring six mosaics from around the world, this book explores different types of story, from historical recount in the Alexander Mosaic to film story in 'North by Northwest'. Each mosaic is looked at in detail, and a more general introduction to the medium provides a historical context. Step-by-step projects show children how to create their own mosaic masterpieces, using the techniques of the art form. Learn how to make a mosaic pen holder or photo frame and how to make a patterned place mat! The Stories in Art series explores the narratives told through different art mediums. A great introduction to the history of art for children at Key Stage 2.

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

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.
