Bob Raczka studied art at the University of Illinois and is currently a advertising writer. He has written nine art books for children, including No One Saw: Ordinary Things Through the Eyes of an Artist; Art Is...; More Than Meets the Eye: Seeing Art with All Five Senses; Unlikely Pairs: Fun with Famous Works of Art; Here's Looking at Me: How Artists See Themselves; and 3-D ABC: A Sculptural Alphabet.From Booklist:
Gr. 1-3. Raczka, the author of Art Is (2003) and No One Saw (2002), encourages children to open their eyes to paintings, but also to experience art imaginatively with their mouths, ears, noses, and fingertips. Arranged thematically by the senses, the book presents pictures representing things to taste (Thiebaud's Cakes), to hear (Tanner's The Banjo Lesson), to smell (Wyeth's Portrait of Pig), to feel (Rivera's The Tortilla Maker), and to see (Close's Self-Portrait). The final pages tell a little about each of the artists, who are neatly identified with thumbnail reproductions of the paintings earlier featured in the book. Raczka's short, rhyming text gives structure to the book, but the color reproductions of well-chosen, vivid paintings steal the show. This art book rests on a simple concept, beautifully executed.
