Kids' favorite animals as featured in fine art make for a kid-pleasing, parent-pleasing concept book.
With these two board books in the Art from the Start series, even the youngest of readers can appreciate what fine art has to offer.
In Painting Cats & Dogs, animal art abounds! From Renoir’s beloved pets to Degas’ majestic horses and Rousseau’s fanciful monkeys, the ten beautiful animal paintings in this book will thoroughly engage babies and toddlers.
And in Red Squares & More Colors & Shapes, there’s so much to see! Whether they are counting Klee’s saturated squares or spotting the shapes in Vermeer’s richly rendered interiors, little ones will find plenty to enjoy about each of the ten masterpieces in this collection.
Spare, rhyming text and famous paintings make reading both of these books (again and again) a pleasure for grownups as well!
