Synopsis

Where is Jasper Johns? by Debra Pearlman

Encouraging young readers' visual and critical thinking skills, this book takes children on a journey of discovery through a selection of artworks by Jasper Johns and by artists who have inspired him. By searching for places where Johns has hidden himself in his work - some works include images of his face, profile, or his shadow - young readers are introduced, in a highly original and imaginative way, to the work of this unique American artist, and they also discover new ways of looking at visual art.

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.
