Review:

"From prehistoric to modern times, this expertly designed survey delivers a wealth of information...this appealing, oversize volume will have readers poring over it again and again." --School Library Journal, October 1, 2009

"DK Publishing has one of the best art departments in children's book publishing. This is particularly demonstrated in the pages of their 'Children's Book of Art' which is enthusiastically recommended for family, school, and community library collections." --Children's Bookwatch (Midwest Book Review), September 1, 2009

"Brimming with colorful illustrations, this large-format book...offers a wealth of information about art." --Booklist Online, November 1, 2009

"The Children's Book of Art is a bright, colorful, well laid out and thought out book offering from DK Publishers...Fascinating, fun stuff and I can't recommend this book more highly. This is my new '5 Star Read.' I think it's top notch and an excellent educational resource book." --5MinutesforBooks.com, November 6, 2009
