Grade 3–6—Raczka pairs paintings with quotes from their respective creators. The artists' words provide insightful glimpses into their philosophies or personalities. Pairings are thoughtful and sometimes humorous, highlighting the work of 19th- and 20th-century men and women from various countries. Raczka features well-known artists, but not always their most famous work, a choice that helps this collection stand out on the shelf. For example, readers will find Dinner for Threshers by Grant Wood when the obvious choice might have been American Gothic. Paintings are clearly labeled, with one or two pieces on a spread. Facts about each artist are appended. A clever and inspiring addition to the series.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO
