Children A First Art Book by Lucy Micklethwait

Eating an ice-cream! Playing a tune! Fishing in the sea! Following Animals and Colours, the third in this innovative series for the very young explores paintings that focus on children. Here are 18 works of art chosen to illustrate all kinds of activities in a child's day - boys eating by Murillo, a child writing by Renoir, a girl sleeping by Millais...The artists represented, who span four centuries, range from old masters to some of today's most renowned painters, and notes on the paintings can be found at the back of the book.


Micklethwait's selection of paintings is always surprising, touching, funny and thought-provoking. Books for Keeps

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