I read this book with my kindergartner over many months, and we both loved learning the names and artists of dozens of famous paintings. I especially like the way each page places its featured painting in context, often comparing it to other paintings on the same subject from different periods, or to paintings by the same artist or from the same period. This would be a great crash course in art history for any elementary student. I only wish that the quality of the illustrations was better - I think if this were printed today, the highlighted features of each painting would be easier to spot because the images would be of higher quality.
