In COME LOOK WITH ME: EXPLORING LANDSCAPE ART WITH CHILDREN art educator Gladys S. Blizzard introduces boys and girls to 12 magnificent landscape paintings. Through these carefully selected works and a thought-provoking text, the author guides students toward an imaginative new way of looking at art.
This book is suited both for family reading and for sharing with a small group. Each full-color reproduction is accompanied by a brief biological sketch of the artist and a series of open-ended questions designed to make the most of a child's natural curiosity.
From Library Journal
This is a wonderful book that will enrich any adult or child. Many children's books have lovely illustrations, but this one uses colorful and well-reproduced landscapes created by famous artists on one page, along with brief texts about the artist and picture on the next. Thoughtful questions are posed to help create awareness and understanding of a situation, and to help youngsters probe the paintings in-depth. This is an unusual book in that it can be enjoyed by the very young and their parents, or employed as an exceptional teaching tool by art teachers. Although the volume is slim, it can be experienced again and again. This will be a worthwhile addition to any public library.
