20 of 20 people found the following review helpful By J. Dawson VINE VOICE on 2 Sep 2003
Format: Hardcover
I work with children and particularly enjoy introducing them to fine art. This is one of the best books I have found on the subject. Quirky, likeable illustrations by the inimitable Lauren Child combine with reproductions of famous artworks. A large range of styles and time periods are represented, and the language used is spot on. Quite a lot of text, so probably most suitable for ages from 5 upwards. This is simply a brilliant tool for stimulating interest in art and encouraging thinking skills, too.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By BookBeetle on 20 May 2008
Format: Paperback
I bought this for my grandson who is football mad, and we read it at bedtime with enormous pleasure and many, many repeats. He was 4 1/2 when we first tried it, and there was no "hard sell", just shared delight. the illustrations are clear and compelling; the links are just the right length to keep interest, yet give information; and that varies from picture to picture, with enough action to make it terrific fun for both of us! Oh and I should say he is now 6 and loves the book just as much!

Great Intro to Fine Art for Children of All Ages 29 Oct 2005
By RobynCz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My 6-year-old daughter loves this book. It provides and outstanding introduction to painting and art history, using a clever story to teach children about symbolism and meaning in fine art. After reading this book one time, my daughter was able to look through one of my husband's art history textbooks and pick out paintings by the same artists as some of those discussed in Dan's Angel. She was also able to look at completely unfamiliar paintings and excitedly talk about how they make her feel and what they might "mean." I wish there were more books like this available!!
