The "Oxford First Book of Art" is a dazzling introduction to the joys of art, for young children. It represents a wonderfully varied collection of images - paintings, drawings, sculpture and textiles - from all around the world and down through the ages. Pictures are grouped by themes beginning with subjects close to home, such as 'Mother and Child' and 'Faces', and developing to more abstract ideas such as 'Light', 'Patterns' and 'Shapes'. Superb reproductions and expert text encourage children to get really involved with the pictures, to look closely, and to give their own reactions. And for every theme there is an 'Art Activity', to show how to apply the ideas they have been looking at in their own art. It features: over 45 works of art from all periods and cultures; stimulating text from an expert author; 'Art Activity' on every double page spread; quizzes and games; and a superb gift book.
