Synopsis

Places by Philip Yenawine

This is one of a series of books on modern art created to help very young people learn the basic vocabulary used by artists, a sort of ABC of art. This book isolates the key elements of place to see how places are depicted by artists and how they help to convey meaning in art. Notes at the back of each book provide brief background information that adults will find useful when talking with children about the images reproduced in these books.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
