I like when people suggest things they use that they like, that has worked for them.
I will check it out usually Amazon has good samples of book pages to get an idea if its something I want to use. I kept eyeballing this book Vincent's Starry Night and Other Stories: A Children's History of Art. What I could see looked good. But still I had to spend the money if it turns out to be a flop.
Well it arrived today and I love it. I will wait until the fall to start using it but I get so excited when new stuff comes in and its something I really like. It looks like a great way to introduce art to children.
Here is a description from Amazon. An enthralling journey through the story of world art, from early cave paintings right up to the present day. Discover artists and their art around the world, in 68 exciting and imaginative tales about artists and the way they created their work.
Written by educator and art historian Michael Bird, and beautifully illustrated by Kate Evans, the book also features reproductions of the famous artworks discussed, a comprehensive timeline of events, and extra feature spreads on places connected with art.
