Full-page, full-color reprints of famous paintings are accompanied by brief historical and biographical commentaries about the paintings and artists.

Third book of the Come Look With Me Series. Perfect for elementary-aged children, Animals in Art pairs quality art reproductions with thought-provoking questions and encourages children to learn through visual exploration and interaction. A great menagerie of animals is represented here for all tastes, from the mysterious deer and horses painted on the cave walls in Lascaux, France, to Paul Klee's whimsical heart-nosed cat dreaming of a bird in Cat and Bird.

Includes works such as:

  • Rosa Bonheur's The Horse Fair and its muscular realism
  • Martin Johnson Heade's Cattleya Orchid and Three Hummingbirds portrays delicate romanticism
  • Henri Matisse's bold, abstract The Snail
  • And much more!

The premise of Come Look With Me is simple. We look at and study a famous painting. While we are looking at it, I read a bit of history about the author and the painting itself. Then there are some discussion questions to promote a deeper understanding of the picture and art in general.

On our first day, all my son wanted to do was run through the book and look at all the pictures quickly. He didn't want to focus on one only and then have to answer questions about it. I forced the issue and we completed the assignment with a lot of grunts and groans, but nothing more. I thought this would be a waste of time.

This week we had a pleasant surprise. We were studying math, of all things. There was a part where he had to circle the larger and smaller object in the pictures. One of the pictures was of trees. When he got to that one he said, "Dad, this tree is smaller so it looks further away just like the smaller trees in that painting of the hunters we studied the other day." I was floored. There was some learning going on during that first art appreciation day...
