Review:
This book-and-game duo is a treasure for the entire family. While children become acquainted with masterpieces of the Impressionists through a picture card game played in the style of "Go Fish," teens and adults learn from the book how historical events led to the development of Impressionism. A double-page spread matching each picture card briefly shows what to look for in each painting, explains artists' materials, and reveals how they achieved special effects. The author's children helped select the art, so it's no wonder that the bright colors, loose brushwork, and many paintings that included children, appealed to our young testers, too. Whether read before or after a museum visit, this book and game will enhance one's understanding and appreciation of painters from Magnet, Monet, and Renoir, to the highly-regarded women artists, Berthed Morison and Mary Cassett.
