The important link between seeing and feeling is the basis of visual arts and an indispensable key to understanding and appreciation. With vivid poetic word imagery, exciting pictures and a masterful use of color, Helen Borten introduces children to all the wonders the visual world can provide!

The simple descriptive text, coupled with the author's persuasive colored drawings, presents the world of familiar objects in its true dimension, a world of light, color, and meaningful forms, a treasure at the child's disposal.
- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

Although its use of limited colour and geometric motifs is redolent of the 1950s, its integration of word and image to explain the power of design was way ahead of its time.
-Martin Salisbury, 100 Great Children's Picture Books

This "art primer" that elegantly introduces children to the formal qualities of shapes, lines and colours was one of The The New York Times' top 10 picture books of 1959. It was Borten's first picture book as sole author and its integration of word and image to explain the power of design was way ahead of its time.
-The Guardian

"Still as fresh today as it was back in the 1960s, it also introduces a whole new generation to Borten's stunning work and unique creativity.
-Picture Books Blogger

"A beautiful introduction of lines, shapes and colors and all of the wonderful things that they make up in the world. Written with clear, simple words but in lyrical verse; Helen Borten shows how different strokes can convey different emotions, thoughts and creativity as well as where they can be found in the natural world. The illustrations are bold and high contrast, drawing little one's eyes to the page and clearly showing what the text is communicating. The text and drawings will encourage kids to looks for these line, shape and color combinations within their own world as well as be encouraged to create their own inspired drawings. Perfect for ages 2-6."
-Rochester Museum and Science Center

Do You See What I See introduces children to the process of combining lines, shapes, and colors to form pictures. [...] I can see this book used very successfully in a beginning art class for early elementary children.
