KIRKUS REVIEW

A reissue, expanded in scope, revived and enlarged- with 184 reproductions, 54 in full color, of perhaps the best introduction to art for children that has been done. Miss Chase knows how to present the paintings she has chosen, how to tell the stories behind them, how each helps introduce a style of painting, a period, a region. We double starred the book back in 1951; it is just as good today.
