Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creates critical conversations in my classroom I bought this to put in my 6th grade classroom library, and it is checked out constantly. Kids look at it and then want to talk about it with other students, and they are having conversations that bring up more questions. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely I bought this as a gift. It's a lovely book. The paintings chosen were not among those I would have chosen as the most important, but it is a good early art book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy the Whole Collection We bought these a month after our first child was born. They are amazing. He is just beginning to take interest in them himself without our introduction now that he can rwad fluently on his own at age 6. We were blown away that he recognized René Magritte in the illusionist Artist Kids Should Know book from his art classes at school! He was excited to recognize an artist and sat down to start reading more! We also made mini-art sessions inspired from one page in the book for playdates as toddlers. A great source for inspiration for kids and adults. Excellent investment. I am sad to see The Met is no longer selling the entire set? I hope they will again at some point - such a treasure made for children’s independent consumption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating and in-depth I bought this for my granddaughter's birthday and she was thrilled. She is an aspiring artist herself and she was amazed at the intricacies of the paintings in the book. We both learnt a lot about the paintings and the artists. Highly recommend this book.
