The Questions Dictionary of Art by Rob Barnes

This fully illustrated new reference guide for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 children provides comprehensive definitions of words and concepts used in the teaching of art. Clearly worded, The Questions Dictionary of Art will shed light on what can often be a confusing vocabulary, and is fully cross-referenced. The book has been designed for both individual and group work and the layout allows teachers to photocopy the entries for mounting on to A4 card or for use in displays. Its content has been chosen to include words within the capabilities of pupils in the primary and early secondary years of schooling. All words are relevant to the teaching and learning of art in the National Curriculum. This dictionary will make a valuable addition to any classroom's collection of basic reference books and to every school's library of books on the subject of art. The dictionary can also be used for language teaching and the literacy hour and is also a useful tool for stimulating discussion.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

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

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
