     Divided into seven chronological sections with dates arranged in columns according to geographic location, this vibrantly illustrated book helps children (and parents!) “connect the dots,” putting worldwide events into their historical period. For example, did you know that Homer composed the Iliad and Odyssey in Europe during 800 BC, while the Hindu religion spread into Southern India that same year? Or that during the American Civil War (1860-1865 AD), the World’s first underground railway was built in London (1863), and Italy was unified? There is so much to learn in this fascinating book! Timeline begins in 10,000 BC and ends 1996. Beautifully illustrated. 128 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

       Step 1: look carefully at one of the paintings in this book for 30 seconds. Step 2: identify as many details as you can. Step 3: turn the page and see if you can answer 10 questions about the painting. The pictures of the paintings are shown as if you are in an art gallery or museum. I had previously seen several of these paintings and I still did not get all of the questions correct! It really made me look for details as I went to the next painting knowing what the questions were like. What color was the sky? What was the woman holding? Can we see their facial expressions? Are they looking the same direction? You can check all of the answers in the back. A final test checks how much you remember about the whole book of pictures! Whether you are new to the art world or consider yourself well versed, these are a fun challenge and strengthen visual memory. Twenty eight paintings include works by VanGogh, DaVinci, Monet, Munch, Kahlo, Leyster, Velasquez, Rousseau and more. 64pp, pb, 9x9” ~ Sara

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. "Words for the Wise" boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. "If You're a Poet, You Should Know It" boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that person's poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25" x 10.25". 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    Highlighting the masterpieces of 20 great painters from the 15th to 20th century, you will dig deeper into the works of both householdname artists as well as more unfamiliar artists – the mix includes van Eyck, Botticelli, Millais,
    Morisot, Chardin, Uccello, and Gaugin, among others. Study a masterpiece from each artist, examining how its unique elements were created. Hone in on certain aspects and compare this work to others by the same artist. The text takes a unique approach in describing the art: it is written as though we are standing there as the artist works. The author’s style is explained in a conversational, story-like form. While I found this style appealing and easily digestible, be aware that the author does take a certain level of liberty, such as fictionalizing some of
    the artist’s thoughts and feelings. This book also analyzes the original intended audience, how the painters bucked established artistic trends, and how audiences have responded through the years. This is a beautiful book with 134 illustrations (126 in color), including a full reproduction of each highlighted masterpiece. With each painting, the “Why Don’t You?” inset suggests an activity, such as journaling, a visit to an art museum, or drawing horizon and perspective. Note: a handful of paintings and sculptures with nude subjects are selected. For each artist, you will also find a portrait and web links to view
    additional artwork; a chronology is in the back. Includes a glossary and a list of art museums to visit. 10” x 11 ¾”, 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth
