Discover all the intriguing details that make great art so fascinating. Each spread in this exciting new book offers a work of art and at least eight items to hunt for somewhere within the painting. Turn the thrill of artistic discovery into a trip through history and around the world, as Can You Find It? invites young readers to look into shadows and reflections, through windows and in the branches of trees. * Find a baby and a yellow bowl in a busy scene from ancient China. * Find a traffic light and a pair of pinky rings in a quiet snack bar of a movie theater. * Find three hands and a white bird in a portrait of a five-year-old French king alone on his throne. * Find five butterflies and two owls in an Egyptian tomb painting. * Find a water pump and a haystack in a view down Main Street in small-town America. The nineteen paintings in Can You Find It?, all from the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, include art ranging from ancient Egyptian friezes to 20th-century works. This book is a great tool to show young readers a wonderful new way to look at art.

Judith Cressy is a Project Editor at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the world's leading cultural institutions and home to more than three million works of art.From Booklist:
Gr. 2-5. The author of What Can You Do with a Paper Bag? (2001) invites graduates of Lucy Micklethwait's simpler "I spy" art series to play seek-and-find with works of art from the Metropolitan Museum's collections. The selections include landscapes, crowd scenes, and portraits from a wide range of eras and artistic traditions; each comes with a list of eight details or items to pick out. A closing key both pinpoints the items and supplies brief additional information about the works and their artists. Viewers will have to be very sharp to spot some of the tinier figures in a folk artist's view of an entire town, or in Pannini's depiction of a riotously overstocked eighteenth-century art gallery; and Tiepolo's Dance in the Country needs a better reproduction before anyone is going to spot "5 blue bows" on its figures. Still, along with deriving pleasure from solving the puzzles, children who pore over the pictures may be willing to give art encountered later more than cursory glances. John Peters
