Children love to look at pictures, and often they can be the most insightful and observant viewers of art. In the "Art for Children" series, kids are exposed to works of art chosen from around the globe and across the centuries. These accessible books bring out what is fun and absorbing about the images, giving young eyes a chance to delight in the shapes, colors, and imaginative details of art form any perspective they choose.
In "The Many Faces of the Face," children discover the innumerable ways in which artists have portrayed the most expressive part of the human body, from the animated face of Charlie Brown's little sister Sally, to the grandeur of an enormous carved head of an ancient Mexican king. A child's natural fascination with faces will find any of these intriguing works-some by well-known artists such as Picasso, others unearthed from remote corners of the world-exciting to uncover.
