Linda Falken is an editor at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Grade 2–5—This seek-and-find book features 20 examples of American art from the Metropolitan Museum, ranging from paintings to prints and quilts. Most of the clear, color reproductions focus on part of a work. Each picture is accompanied by a list of items to be found in it. The colors of the numerals ("4 dogs, 1 open window, 2 produce stands") are cleverly employed in dots on small black-and-white images at the end of the book, revealing the locations of the objects. The only shortcoming is that these illustrations are so small that readers may need a magnifying glass to peruse them. Additional information about each piece is included here as well. One goal of this seek-and-find is to teach children to look at art and observe its many details, encouraging them to play "Can You Find It?" whenever they visit a museum. This book will be a success with fans of art and puzzles alike.—Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO
