Paintings from the Metropolitan Museum of Art undergo scrutiny in Can You Find It? by Judith Cressy. The text prompts onlookers to investigate 19 paintings that each stretch across a spread and are abutted by vertical panels with color-coded lists of more than 150 items to locate. Peter Saul's View of San Francisco, Number 2, for example, challenges children to find ""6 ships/ 3 palm trees/ 3 bridges/ 1 wiggly road/ 1 tunnel/ 3 pagodas/ 1 doughnut-shaped building/ & the number 76 twice."" Back matter provides the answers and further information about each artist.
