Pages: 32

Publisher: Thomasson-Grant, Inc.

 

Summary:

A children’s book of 12 landscape art including Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Richard Estes’s Michigan Avenue with View of the Art Institute, Albert Beirstadt’s The Oregon Trail and more.  Each work of art is a full page, with the opposing page containing questions to help the child interpret and study it.  For example, for The Starry Night, some of the questions are: “Do you think this scene looks warm or cold? Why? What kind of mood or feeling do you have when you look at this painting? Why?” (p. 15)  There is also a short description of each artist and the work presented.

Marie’s Review:

An excellent, excellent book for homeschool.  This book is a mini art curriculum that can be spread over a week or more, which filled a gap in the My Father’s World curriculum we’re using.  I checked it out from the library, but this is one worth buying and going over again and again.

Grace’s Review: It was okay. Some of the artwork was great, and some I didn’t like.

Lainey’s Review:  I liked it because the pictures are cool.

Christian Friendly:  Yes

Sensitive Readers:  Caution  

The Repast of the Lion, by Henri Rousseau shows a lion eating another animal.
