Look! Look! Look! written and illustrated by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace and Linda K. Friedlaender tells the story of three mice who come across an interesting postcard. It has the portrait of a lady in a patterned dress on it, which inspires the mice. They observe and discuss all the different kinds of lines, shapes, and colors they can see in the portrait. The mice recreate the picture using lines and shapes, and then notice how, with the same shapes, you can also make different pictures. This story is very informative, and at the same time it would easily keep a young child’s attention, because of its colorful pictures, and fun storyline, which keeps you guessing. In the back, the book also features a glossary of the art terms used, and instructions on how to create and mail your very own postcard. What a fun way to teach a child art!
