Look up! Look down! Look around you! The world around is full of exciting things… The Looking Book is a beautiful creative activity book that will encourage children to appreciate their surroundings and develop their drawing, writing and photography skills.

Look up! Look down! Look around you! This creative activity book for children aged 7+ will encourage drawing, painting, writing and creativity. 

The world around us is full of exciting things – people, places, shapes, patterns, colours – but so much of it passes us by. Changing the way that we look can help us see more of these great things that we usually take for granted, and notice things that can make us smile. Maybe you’ll see a particularly pretty puddle, a building with eyes and a mouth, a cloud that looks like a dog or a dog that looks like a cloud!

This book will help you look closer at everything around you and to record your observations through drawing, writing and photography.

The best way to use this book is to take it out and about with you, and complete the pages that work with your surroundings. It’s full of space to draw, write and stick things in and activities to complete, as well as information about artists that you may not already know. It shows that anyone can be creative and that creativity and inspiration are all around us. The book not only encourages children to create like artists but also encourages them to appreciate their surroundings.

As Paul Smith says, "you can find inspiration in anything and if you can't then look again".

MEDIA REVIEWS

“[An] inspiring new art activity book… A perfect resource for the school holidays.” Little Library Owl “It is such a wonderful book that encourages children to look more closely at their surroundings and record their observations using drawings, writing and photography. Lots of information is included on different artists and the techniques and styles they use. Such a brilliant book for taking out and about!” Rascals and Rainbows “A unique and creative way to introduce children to the world of art. With plenty of space to add their own drawings, it has the potential to turn into a fantastic portfolio to save and share.” Scope for Imagination “Here is a book that will help [children] get over that can’t do notion … It’s full of creative ideas that show youngsters how to view the world as an artist might and then go on to create art of their own. By looking at things as if through the lenses of eleven artists … [through] exciting challenges. [Lucia Vinti] encourages looking closer, looking up, down and all around, taking time to appreciate the surroundings, not taking anything you see for granted wherever you are and wherever you go.”Red Reading Hub “A wonderfully interactive art book that teaches you about artists and also encourages you to create your own art on the book’s pages. It talks about Frida Kahlo and her self-portraits and then encourages you to draw your own self-portrait, to bring the book outside and draw what you see there, and to visit an art gallery and use the book to explore the works of art there. Beautifully designed and laid out, this is the perfect book for young artists.” Irish Independent
