Young children love a good game of "I Spy with My Little Eye." In this beautifully designed book they are playfully challenged to find details "hidden" in some of the world's greatest paintings. On each double-page spread, a large reproduction of a masterpiece such as Kandinsky's Heavenly Blue, Seurat's A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Rousseau's The Dream or Breugel's Children's Games is paired with a list of items to search for: a dog, an umbrella, or a ball, for instance. A brief age-appropriate text makes connections between the art and the child's own environment. Arranged chronologically, the pictures expose children to an endless array of artistic styles, periods, and cultures. Although the appendix contains solutions to the challenges, every child knows that the fun is in the hunt. Filled with hours of joyful discovery, this art book sets the stage for greater artistic appreciation as children grow older.

Finding and naming colours and objects is an exciting activity for young children and what better way to teach them than through art? This ingenious book employs great works of art from a variety of genres and periods to ask children engaging questions. Children are also invited to play "I Spy" with colours and objects in a medieval tapestry, a renaissance mural, an aboriginal work from Australia, or a painting by Hieronymus Bosch. In addition, each work is accompanied by a brief description for older readers. Filled with glorious colour, this introduction to important works will set the stage for a greater appreciation of art in later years.
