Anna at the Art Museum
Anna at the Art Museum introduces readers to fine art in a very unique way. Being at a museum is not the way that Anna--a curious, active child--would normally choose to spend her day. Each room seems to be yet another series of boring pictures that you can't even touch! And then Anna spies a doorway left ajar. With some help from a sympathetic guard, Anna gets to visit parts of the museum regular visitors cannot.
I love the examples of art sprinkled throughout the book (along with explanatory notes at the end). This book is a great introduction to a variety of artists and styles of art. If you are planning a visit to an art museum with a young person, consider reading this book first to help them understand what they will encounter. Maybe even bring the book along and see if your museum has any of the same paintings or find art that demonstrates a similar technique or uses the same subject or color choices. Readers will enjoy exploring with Anna and won't even realize they are learning at the same time!
