Publisher: Chronicle Books

Author: Julie Merberg

List Price: $19.95

Ages: 3-4 Years

Reviewed By: Rena Arlen

It is never too early to expose children to fine art. Chronicle Books understands this, and has chosen to put together a special collection of board books just for this purpose. Mini Masters is a set of four board books that come in a protective slipcase. Each 24-page, 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" book introduces a famous painter.

A Magical Day with Matisse opens with a two-page spread containing the following verse and Matisse's painting, "The Open Window, Collioure."
Grab your hat!
Come out and play
Where sailboats bob
On a blueberry bay.
Note: Two of Matisse's more "primitive" paintings are of nudes.

The other books in this collection are Dancing with Degas, In the Garden with Van Gogh, and A Picnic with Monet. Every two-page spread presents a painting and an appropriate verse. The quality here is exceptional and for the most part the paintings chosen are excellent. Each book ends with a page that gives information on the included paintings.

Other books in this series...
Painting with Picasso
Sharing with Renoir
Sunday with Suerat
Quiet Time with Cassatt

Each of the books in this series is also available individually for $6.95.
