From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- These outstanding concept books use the resources of the Museum of Modern Art in New York to provide examples of a variety of styles of painting. The texts are minimal, and the reproductions are thoughtfully chosen from various types of two-dimensional media, including black-and-white and color drawings and paintings in representational and abstract styles. Yenawine has artfully succeeded in his goal to make a point from which children can extrapolate their own varied artistic conclusions. Colors is a unique book, as it simply demonstrates the variety of moods and effects that can be achieved by various techniques of color blending. Examples include Jasper Johns, Seurat, Kirchner, and Steichen. In Lines , readers see a Matisse drawing, Van Gogh's A Starry Night , Kandinsky, and Jackson Pollock, among others. Shapes presents the idea of simple shapes made more important by placement, precision, and drawing technique with examples from Klee, Mondrian, Cezanne, and several more. Here Yenawine also superimposes dotted lines to demonstrate the use of larger shapes in the composition of whole paintings. Stories opens, "In pictures, you can make up stories about people . . . and places . . . and things." Four circular details from paintings complete the page: Chagall's Birthday , Matisse's Piano Lesson , Dali's Persistence of Memory , and Wyeth's Christina's World . The final few pages of each book provide students with a more detailed attribution and description, as well as a brief analysis of why the work was chosen for inclusion in that volume. While the format most readily lends itself to primary grade audiences, the excellence of the content encourages perusal by older students, even in some high school classes. --Dorcas Hand, Annunciation Orthodox School, Houston

From Publishers Weekly:

In these four volumes the author, director of education at New York City's Museum of Modern Art, offers an imagination-sparking tour of paintings from the museum's collection. In Lines , he helps readers see this essential painterly element in its many guises: broad brush strokes, wiggly finger paintings, even the spaces between colors. Stories promotes interpretation of such legendary practitioners as Rousseau, Dali and Chagall. Shapes encourages perception of nonrepresentational forms; in a Cezanne still life, for instance, are geometric forms underlying both objects and composition. Colors explores hues--vibrant or dusky, serene or disquieting--and the responses they can engender in a viewer. A brief note on each painting appears in the back of each book. (Unfortunately, the red-and-black format of these indices reduces readability.) These works will enrich a trip to the museum for teachers, parents and children. Ages 7-10.
