From Stonehenge, the pyramids, and Angkor Wat to the Renaissance, Rembrandt's workshop, African art, and surrealism, this book introduces children to art through the ages. To keep it simple, each development, breakthrough, or period is illustrated by a single representative work of art.

Gr 4-7-This ambitious volume attempts to cover the entire history of the world's art. The book has plentiful, varied full-color illustrations and reproductions with picture captions (textual sound bites). While the design is appealing, this choice of format affords a small amount of narrative that makes covering such a broad topic even more challenging. The author lists artists that deserve at least a mention, but there are still notable exclusions (C zanne). The excellent artwork includes reconstructive drawings that capture a Renaissance artist's workshop, a Mayan temple complex, and a Chinese emperor's tomb. The detailed descriptions of artistic processes, such as mosaic and fresco, are another noteworthy feature. The book includes chapters on Asia, Africa, and the Americas. This title is aimed at a younger audience than H. W. Janson's History of Art for Young People, which covers just Western art. The best introduction to art for this age group is Joy Richardson's Looking at Pictures (both Abrams, 1997), which employs a thematic approach and a livelier writing style, not even attempting to cover such a broad period of history. An additional purchase for most libraries.-Robin L. Gibson, Muskingum County Library System, Zanesville, OH
