I think this book is underrated and quite lovely. There are a few board books that do and I spy sort of theme in art, however this is large and the pictures are large enough to study. Early introduction to art is important and the numbers encourage close inspection. It also gives children something to do at museums and teaches them that art is accessible. This game can be played in any art setting and it encourages parents to understand that children have a place in that world as well.

I would incorporate this book in my class to help students with counting, using a projector and having them spy and find the things described on the pages. I would also talk to them about the art pieces in the book so they can learn about the world and Art.

This is an interesting counting book. It teaches children how to count but also introduces them to the world of art. The book also makes it fun for children to read because they make it into an "I spy" game which makes the child interact with the book and really look at the pictures.

My kids got tired of the number aspect after 12. They did, however, continue to inspect the paintings for random details, like "the giant, nasty bug" in the painting with the 18 cherries. They were also intrigued by the different works featuring Mary and Jesus.

-Great for counting
-Allows children to see numbers within art
-uses real pieces of art by famous artists
-I would use this to integrate art with math and allow my students to create a piece of artwork that has some amount or number in it.

I really like this, both as a counting book and as an art book. My one complaint is that the pictures are too small. There is a lot of white space on all of the pages, and I think that really detracts from some of the works of art that are included. Still, It's a great children's art book.

Nicely done. The numbers encourage a little picture study as the kids try to find all the items in the paintings.
