Crisp close-ups of the everyday objects that Pablo Picasso transformed into sculpture offer a fresh look at the artist's work. With each page turn, the reader's imagination unfolds as the moon becomes a guitar and a dolphin becomes a bull.

This is a fun book that has close-up pictures of one of Picasso's sculptures. The text asks you to guess what you are looking at. Nice book for preschoolers through elementary school age kids. I wish that it were bigger so that it would be easier to show a large group of kids the pictures.

A simple little art book for very young children that encourages the reader to use their imagination to interpret what the close up image may be or what it is made of. This is another fun way to expose kiddos to the wondrous world of art.

The concept of this picture book is that a bit of a Picasso sculpture is shown, and the reader must guess what the whole piece is. This is fun for children, and teaches an important lesson about how we look at and see the world around us. (and what is art?) My only issue with the book is that they choose two very similar items in the five art pieces that are shown. Otherwise, a fun choice and catchy introduction to Pablo Picasso.
Sam Bloom
A really cool book that looks at various Picasso sculptures from different angles, then finally takes in the entire piece so that children can see what it is. Great concept, cool photographs on backgrounds of striking hues of red, yellow and orange. And it's hard to argue with the sculptures themselves! (It's hard to argue with any sculpture, period, because they are usually inanimate objects, but that's another story...)

This is an art-based book that provides some insight into the world of modern art. It also encourages the reader to use the imagination and encourages individual interpretation. The book is light on text, heavy on bright colors. The back has a visual glossary of sorts explaining each piece of Picasso’s art used throughout.

A really cool book that looks at various Picasso sculptures from different angles, then finally takes in the entire piece so that children can see what it is. Great concept, cool photographs on backgrounds of striking hues of red, yellow and orange. Great intro to Picasso for kids. Good for an Art Storytime.
Dodie
A wonderful introduction to the contemporary art for the littlest lookers. Five multimedia sculptures are deconstructed and slowly each whole piece is revealed, allowing for imagining and wondering about the parts.

this could be a good book for using your imagination. It could be a short storytime book, but the kids wouldn't see the images very well.
Mary
Very clever way to introduce art, in this case Picasso, to young children.
