A fantastic book filled with famous works of art accompanied by simple art activities using some of the same techniques as the artists. Activities include salt dough sculptures, printed flowers and fingerpaint fish, alongside art by Rembrandt, Rousseau, Kandinsky, Matisse and Picasso. My Very First Art Book won the Children's Choice Award in the under 7s category. The judges said of this book:"A bright, cheerful and extremely inviting book with a host of practical and achievable activities related to some carefully selected art examples: the binding allows any reference page needed to stay open too." The School Libraries Award (SLA) Information Book Award 2011 is a new prize.
