The ultimate book in this genre is the wonderful A Year in Art... a luscious tome which uses masterpieces as the launch pad for quizzes, stories and art projects. My nine year old is already an addict --David Redhead, V&A Magazine (October 2009)

Modeled after Prestel s successful A Year in Art series, this beautifully produced activity book introduces children to many of the world s greatest artworks ranging from African masks to European paintings and modern art."

She has started recognizing the names of a lot of the artists. Sometimes there are several artworks throughout the book, and she'll say, "oh, there's a painting earlier in the book by this artist" and then look for it. If we go to an art museum or she reads books based on artists (like the Anholt's Artist books for children--which I also highly recommend) it strengthens her recognition of the artists she learns about in this book.
Some of the activities are just looking for items in a painting (like "I Spy"), or make a mosaic like the one in the photo, or finish the painting, what is this girl thinking about, etc. We like it so much we bought this as a gift for her friend and will add it to our "regular gift" list. Highly recommend it for introducing various art forms, art history, critical thinking, and just plain fun.
