Reviews

“I have great respect for the art of imitation—to learn to saw or hammer by watching a good carpenter—a highly perceptive process. Storybook Art honors the ability of creativity and perception within the child.” —Marvin Bileck, illustrator of Rain Makes Applesauce, 1965 Caldecott Honor Book, ALA Notable Book, and New York Times 10 Best Illustrated Books

“Storybook Art takes kids inside the mind and soul of picture book illustrators, offering them a bridge of hands-on art to connect to their favorite books. Every teacher of early readers—and every parent—should have a copy.” —Karen Katz, author illustrator of Counting Kisses, NAPPA 2001 Gold Award, Bank Street Books Best Children's Books 2002

“Arithmetic lesson from Susan L. Roth: 100 great picture book illustrators X 100 great Storybook Art activities=100,000 inspirations.” —Susan L. Roth, illustrator of My Love For You All Year Round

“What an amazing book and great resource! I am sure Storybook Art will bring inspiration and fun to many young artists and older ones too! (Hmm, I think I will make a Crictor snake with all my orphan socks.)” —Barbara Garrison, illustrator of Only One

“Storybook Art is a fantastic way to bridge the gap between literature and real-life hands-on fun!” —Robert Bender, author and illustrator of The A to Z Beastly Jamboree

“As an author I know how important illustrations are, often speaking louder than words. Connecting children to illustrators through their first means of written communication—their artwork—is the best way to make story books more meaningful to them. What a great idea!!!” —Pam Schiller, author of A Chance for Esperanza and Sing a Song of Opposites

“MaryAnn Kohl (with coauthor Jean Potter) continue to make life richer for children with their new book, Storybook Art. We are adding it to our library shelves and those of our grandchildren. We highly recommend it.” —Robert and Marlene McCracken, “Literacy Through Teaching” consultants and authors

“Storybook Art creates, for adults and children alike, a heightened awareness of the role illustrations play in literacy development. Kohl and Potter inspire children to explore their favorite books in new and creative ways.” —Cecile Culp Mielenz, Ph.D., Early Childhood Literacy Specialist, Bureau of Education and Research

Fun and easy art-appreciation activities abound in this resource that features 75 American artists from colonial times to the present. A brief biography for each artist tells why his or her work is important, and a kid-tested art activity tries out the artist’s approach. For Georgia O’Keeffe, the activity is a desert painting; for Frederic Remington, a face cast; for Leroy Nieman, a sketch of athletes; and for James Whistler, a clay engraving. Projects stress the creative process and encourage kids to try unusual techniques such as block printing, soak-stain, and stone carving as they learn about architecture, drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. A resource guide provides a glossary of art terms, a list that groups the artists by style, a list of the artists’ birthdays, an index of art supplies, and websites for viewing art online.
