Come Look With Me: World of Play (Come Look With Me)
Come Look With Me World of Play - Come Look With Me Author:Gladys S. Blizzard Not only children, but also adults who read to them can learn from and enjoy this introduction to the visual delights of fine art, the fourth book in the much-acclaimed COME LOOK WITH ME series. COME LOOK WITH ME: World of Play pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions, encouraging children to enter the painting or sculpt... more »ure and explore it through the artists eyes, through the eyes of the people depicted, and through the childs own imagination. Author Gladys S. Blizzard has chosen twelve fascinating works of art ranging from an ancient Minoan fresco and a classic Winslow Homer to a wacky modern basketball game sculpted by Red Grooms in painted wood. This book can be shared by adults and children at home, in the classroom, in a library or museum. Wherever the setting, readers will enjoy this new way of looking at art: at the eager Mexican youngsters diving for falling candies and fruits in Diego Riveras Pinata; at Pieter Bruegels Childrens Games, where a townful of children engage in more than eighty different games of the 1500s; at Elaine de Koonings Baseball Players, who, in a flash of color, make a deciding play at home plate. What children learn here by looking can spark in them a lifetime of appreciation for the fine arts.« less
