The Great Art Treasure Hunt
Finding and naming colours and objects is an exciting activity for young children and what better way to teach them than through art? This ingenious book employs great works of art from a variety of genres and periods to ask children engaging questions. Children are also invited to play "I Spy" with colours and objects in a medieval tapestry, a renaissance mural, an aboriginal work from Australia, or a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. In addition, each work is accompanied by a brief description for older readers. Filled with glorious colour, this introduction to important works will set the stage for a greater appreciation of art in later years.
