Zoom in on Art

by Gillian Wolfe

Reviewed October 29, 2002.
Oxford University Press, New York, 2002.  40 pages.

Look!  Zoom in on Art is a beautiful introduction to art for kids.  The two-page spreads have titles like “Look Up,” “Look Down,” Look Outside,” Look All Around,” “Look Quickly,” and “Look Inwards.”  The author presents 18 famous paintings under these headings and points out a few interesting details about each one.  A wide variety of styles is presented.  Browsing through this book is both educational and entertaining.
