Summary
COME LOOK WITH ME: ART IN EARLY AMERICA introduces children to twelve magnificent works of art. More importantly, it offers both children and adults a whole new way of encountering any work of art, one that engages the imagination as much as the eye. Well suited for both individual and classroom use, ART IN EARLY AMERICA pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging children to learn through visual exploration and interaction. Thoughtful text introduces the world and work of the artist, making the most of a child's natural curiosity.
