Children's & Educational; Interactive & activity books & packs; Art: general interest (Children's&YA)
Unfold pages, lift flaps, gaze into mirrors, and peek through acetate holes to interact with art like never before. Inspired by the many ways that art can be viewed and experienced, this book encourages children to spend time with a curated selection of fine art from the Whitney collection - and to dig deeper and consider all angles.

Each artwork is showcased with a novelty mechanism and caption, written in collaboration with the Whitney's education department, for curious hands and wondrous eyes.

Reviews for Art This Way

Tamara Shopsin and Jason Fulford create some of my favourite children's books and their latest collaboration lives up to my high expectations of their work...

The message behind the book is one that many kids are already familiar with and good at: keep looking. -Baby Librarians An interactive board book with lift the flaps, foldout pages, cutouts, and more that help little fingers explore famous works of art. -Bookriot Take a peek at art from a variety of different literal and metaphorical angles. Innovatively designed... The format enhances readers' understanding of the art. Art appreciation with an ingenious twist. -Starred review, Kirkus Reviews Adults and children alike will love exploring and discussing each page of Art This Way. Art This Way can be used in a classroom unit on art appreciation.
