Nonfiction Monday

My selection is Snail Trail written and illustrated by Jo Saxton. A colorful snail leads the readers through an assortment of paintings by well-known masters in search of the one like himself.

The rhyming text makes a brief observation of each work beginning with Jackson Pollock and ending with Henri Matisse's collage, The Snail. The book is an enjoyable introduction to looking at art for readers in K-3.
