13 Artists Children Should Know

Personal Evaluation: I was struck by how many of the artists were modern, and how I had never heard of a couple of them. In general I liked the layout; the one downside was that some of the artists took up more than a two-page spread and yet sometimes the identifying information for the next artist was on the right-hand page, making the boundaries between artists kind of confusing. Also there was no conclusion which made the ending pretty abrupt.

What might interest children: The layout is very attractive and visually stimulating (but not too much). It’s easy to compare and contrast artists’ quick facts and timelines to put them into context, and then read more in-depth about them.
