Press & blog reviews
Another super book from Usborne Books, guaranteed to inspire an interest in art - Usborne do this type of book so well! The techniques used are simple enough for young children to feel confident in tackling them and the ideas they learn will stand them in good stead for artistic efforts through the years. The ideas are practical and use resources most families will have at home - and there are lots of ideas here to inspire teachers too. The book is a well-deserved Children's Choice Award winner in the 0-7 age category at the inaugural SLA Information Book Awards. Children are the best judges of what they like!
Parents in Touch
The My First Art Book from Usborne books is a wonderfully artistic and educational activity book. The use of colours and illustration on each page is wonderful...In our opinion, this children's art book is a really cleverly designed, fun and ingenious way to get children interested in experimenting with their creative and artistic side. Not only does it introduce young children subtly to some genuine works of art, but also provides some really helpful techniques for them to practice, incorporate and build on....even adults could learn a thing or two!
Filled with real works of art and lots of ideas, itís the perfect resource to help young children from the age of 4 create artwork all by themselves.
