Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Wendie's Wanderings.

My selection is I Spy Shapes in Art by Lucy Micklethwait.

  • Built on the "I Spy with my little eye" games familiar from driving trips, Micklethwait encourages her young readers to find shapes in 14 famous paintings from artists ranging from Warhol to Matisse. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to look at art in a new way and introduce some of the world's best known talents.
Here is the answer to Friday's Famous First: "For hundreds of years, most people thought the earth was the center of the universe, and the sun and the moon and all the other planets revolved around it." is from the Caldecott Honor book Starry Messenger: Galileo Galilei created and illustrated by Peter Sis.
