My First Picture Book Of The Year
Children: A First Art Book by Lucy Micklethwait is a collection of works of art used to illustrate common childhood activities. I thought it was kind of interesting, a way of introducing children to the idea that looking at traditional art can be a pleasurable experience.
Micklethwait has a series of I Spy books that also serve as introductions to fine art.
