Great overview of ancient – modern art As my 9.5 year old daughter says “This book isn’t like most kid’s art books. This book tell you about why someone made art and what they’re trying to say. I like that.” Me too.

Great book! This is a very big well made book about the Arts. It covers a lot – paintings, sculptures, music and instruments, photography and dance. It covers a lot really and the pictures featured are beautifully displayed around text like a scrapbook. It doesn’t go deep into the subjects, it’s more like an overview but I think it’s great for my 7 year old – it’s not overwhelming.

Good Variety & Excellent Images I used this book to supplement a high school fine arts course and absolutely love the images! It’s not an incredibly comprehensive source of information like a typical art history text, but gives just enough to inform about a wide variety of arts topics and movements. Great variety of topics!
