Praise for Get Into Art Animals

Booklist
(starred review) Brooks' goal to convince her readres that art is not just something one observes, but rather something that one does. It's impossible not to be intrigued. . . . The projects range in difficulty from those with beginners skills to those suited for more expreienced young artists. . . . Brooks believes that a deeper appreciation of high art can be had by kids, and this revelatory offereing encourages them to find it.
