How Artists See Jr. Dogs by Colleen Carroll


How Artists See Jr. Dogs by Colleen Carroll

This long-awaited little sibling of Abbeville's bestselling How Artists See series shows preschoolers the varied and beautiful ways in which artists see the world around them. The How Artists See Jr. board books are a child's first introduction to the magic and beauty of art. Like a miniature museum exhibit that parent and child can explore together, each book features twelve diverse works of art from around the world, centered on a theme that little ones love: Babies, Dogs, Horses, or Trains. This enlightened and proven approach for bringing art to children is ideal for the board book set. The apples to apples comparisons will engage young children, helping them see the familiar in unfamiliar ways, while the books' comfortable size and colorful presentation will make them lasting family favorites. Designed specifically to encourage parent-child interaction, the books also feature a Parents' Guide on their back covers suggesting questions for Mom or Dad to ask while browsing. Adapted from the acclaimed How Artists See series by Colleen Carroll, the concise, appealing How Artists See Jr. format gives young learners a taste of the many exciting ways in which artists see their world. Once they have finished looking at the books, kids may want to create some art of their own! Age Range: 2-to 6-year-olds
