Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful book The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of masters' paintings and has a lovely tactile cover. I got it for my grandchildren and wrote a little note to them about my beliefs in the front. The verbiage inside is a little advanced for them right now. I believe they will appreciate it later, as I gained an appreciation for such books given to me as a child.
