★★★ THE REVIEWS ARE IN! ★★★


"From underneath the lid the basic tools emerge and are vividly displayed on colorful double-page spreads complemented by handmade paper borders . . . a simple explanation of primary and secondary colors rounds out this solid beginning to the creative world of art.""School Library Journal

"The organization is logical, proceeding from the familiar to the less so, and the straightforward text combines boldface headings, captions, and succinct descriptions.""Booklist
