Grade 3-5-A neon-orange cover will draw readers into this oversized title. In the first section, 23 labeled works of art from Egyptian papyrus to Jackson Pollock's Number 6 are framed in bright colors over full spreads. In addition to highlighting a range of periods, d'Harcourt has included a number of cultures and mediums. There are large, good-quality reproductions of a Byzantine mosaic, pages from an Arabic manuscript, a section from an Aztec codex, a medieval tapestry, a Japanese woodblock print, and numerous paintings. Readers are encouraged to find the enlarged, numbered details that surround each picture; they have been selected with an eye to what will interest young people and what might have been missed in a quick glance. On boldly designed pages, concise back notes add dates; context; and information about the medium, process, or style of each work. In the last section, keys to locating the numbered details in each illustration and information about the artist or culture appear under flaps sporting small reproductions. This title will appeal especially to children who like to pore over pictures and fiddle with flaps. In the vein of Bob Raczka's Art Is (Millbrook, 2003), it's a nontraditional survey and will be a striking extra for most collections.
