A Child's Gift of Art

Laurence Anholt. Barron's Educational Series, $16.95 (128pp) ISBN 978-0-7641-7524-4

The Child's Gift of Art, a boxed set by Laurence Anholt, contains four handsize titles, each a tale about a child's encounter with an artist: Leonardo and the Flying Boy (da Vinci); Degas and the Little Dancer; Picasso and the Girl with the Ponytail; and Camille and the Sunflowers (van Gogh). Reproductions of actual works appear; each volume closes with a brief biography of the artist.
