This long-awaited "little sibling" of Abbeville's bestselling How Artists See series shows preschoolers the varied and beautiful ways in which artists see the world around them.
In How Artists See Jr.: Trains
children will encounter pictures of steam trains, electric trains, morning trains, night trains, and more, created by Georgia O'Keeffe, Claude Monet, Renï¿½ Magritte, and others.
The How Artists See Jr.
board books are a child's first introduction to the magic and beauty of art. Like a miniature museum exhibit that parent and child can explore together, this book features twelve diverse works of art from around the world, centered on a theme that little ones love: Babies, Dogs, Horses or Trains.
The "apples to apples" comparisons will engage young children, helping them see the familiar in unexpected ways, while the books' comfortable size and colorful presentation will make them lasting family favorites. Designed specifically to encourage parent-child interaction, thoughtful conversations and vocabulary enrichment, the books feature a "Parents' Guide" on their back covers suggesting questions for Mom or Dad to ask while browsing.
Adapted from the acclaimed How Artists See
series by Colleen Carroll, the concise, appealing How Artists See Jr.
format gives young learners a taste of the many exciting ways in which artists see their world. Once they have finished looking at the books, kids may want to create some art of their own!
