This book introduces young children to basics of making prints with paints. Sample activities and supply list, plus introductory vocabulary makes this a really good book to include in the art for kids library. It's a short book and one could spend a few hours completing all of these. The book is beautifully designed with clear pictures and well written text. I also appreciate the non gendered approach in the drawings, and one of the illustrated children rolls around in a wheelchair. Highly recom ...more

This is a terrific little book for teaching kids basic elements of print-making, including terms like pattern, fold, relief, etching, and more. Clear, step-by-step instructions for simple art projects make the process seem easy for young children. Notes about necessary materials and, for parents, on encouraging children artistically, frame the text. This series would make an excellent addition to any library, public or private, and Art teachers may find this series invaluable in the classroom.

This book shares how to make different prints with paints. It is fun for kids of a younger age. This book would be great to start a painting art project from kindergarten to 2nd grade. This book uses a lot of white space with multiple examples of prints that one is able to do.
