Giving: Come Look With Me

I plan to do three book reviews this month, starting with the series titled “Come Look With Me,” published by Charlesbridge Publishing.

There are nine books in the series, each focusing on a different theme for the works of art covered in each book.

In each book there are several images of art, next to each image parents will find a series of question to help their children further explore the image they are seeing. Some of the questions are only asking for personal opinion, “What do you think the child in this image is feeling?” Some are more challenging, “Find a place in the image where the brush strokes all go in the same direction. Find a place where they go in different directions. Why do you think the artist  painted them in different ways?”

Both of my children love these books, and I like having the questions on the side as a “go to” for more discussion. Sometimes I get stuck at “Can you find a red circle,” it’s really neat to see the great questions and even more fun to hear your children’s answers.
