The Prado Family Fold-Out by Bank Street College, Bank Street College

First in Scalas 4 Fold series designed to appeal to children, using the innovative horizontal and vertical fold-outs to highlight and explain the most popular pictures in the Prado. Produced in conjunction with Bank Street College, the US experts in child development, this is a delightful presentation of the Prado Museums collections, which asks the child to enjoy and assess the pictures through a series of stimulating questions and interesting nuggets of information. The book is divided into 7 imaginatively laid out sections: How a Royal Museum was born; Royal Families; The Holy Famil; Everyday life; Warriors; Play and recreation; Vistas - and draws on paintings by Goya, Velazquez, Murillo, El Greco, Rubens, Titian, Moroni, Sorolla, Rembrandt and many more to illustrate the themes. This is an excellent example of how to portray great art to a younger audience in an exciting and stimulating way.
