About this title


Examines how various artists depict different parts of nature in their work and describes some of the techniques used.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- The ingredients for each two-page ``chapter'' include one or two reproductions of artifacts from the world's museums; several paragraphs commenting on them in some way; a : few lines of instructions for making something related to the reproductions (e.g. a potato print in the essay on block prints); and, most frequently, illustrations of some examples of things made by one of three staff artists. Sometimes insipid questions are also included, e.g. ``Can you see the huge pile of crayfish ready to eat sic?'' If the reproductions were larger, some basis for appreciative study might be claimed. Or if considerably more detailed instructions were included there might be a case made for the books as ``how-to's.'' Or if the handful of artists' biographies (not a single woman in the lot) were longer than 70 or so words, there might be reason to consider these of some historical value. As is, each volume is a hodgepodge of pictures chosen for no apparent reasons with comments focused on the stories behind the pictures or information to be exploited for the eventual activities. The page designs, while crowded, do not confuse; the reproductions, however, are a bit muddy. Overall, the superficiality of the texts and the impression that the significance of art is to provide inspiration for children's thing-making make these books of questionable value. --Kenneth Marantz, Art Education Department, Ohio State University, Columbus
