Book Review Dec 31, 2008
This book will be valuable to incorporate students' awareness of some great illustrators and books that interest them, stir enthusiasm and help open up possbilities for drawing and art.
Fun Approach Sep 20, 2007
This book is a fun approach in communicating the elements of art, fun for teacher and student. And what could be better than getting kids to take an interest in reading and art. Can you say future children's book Illustrator? This book will open many more books. I would highly recommend it for the elementary art teacher or home schooler.

Great Nov 10, 2006
This book has a lot of ideas for lesson planning in the art room. It is divided into sections so that lessons are easy to find and also offers many great children's books to base lessons off of. GREAT!

I would recommend this book for elementary classroom teachers. It provides outstanding projects and ideas for integrating Art into Language Arts. The author does and excellent job of teaching the elements of art and principles of design in the art projects! I am an Art Teacher and have taught many of the projects in the book. All projects were successful!
