This series introduces the key media and art forms likely to be experienced by readers at home and at school. Large pictures encourage children to discuss differences in technique and style, across a wide range of historical and modern artworks from different cultures.
The diversity of textiles featured in just twenty-four pages is commendable and makes for great conversation-starters about textiles around the world. A step-by-step tutorial for making your own paper weaving creates the perfect bridge to help readers put what they’ve learned into action. – Children’s Literature
