    I am reading this for a mock Caldecott lesson...this wordless picture book features a young man who visits the Museum of Modern Art and imagines that he takes the characters from the paintings out of the museum and on a field trip around the city.

    In the author's note in the back of the book, Colon talks about how he never had the opportunity to visit an art museum as a child. His interactions with art were all secondhand, through pictures in books. When he first saw Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night in person, as an adult, he was overwhelm

    This is a beautiful tribute to art and inspires young readers to experience, and then incorporate it into their lives.

    A young boy skateboards across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan in this gorgeous wordless picture-book, eventually finding himself in front of the Museum of Modern Art. Going in on a (seeming) impulse, he is astonished by what he sees and engrossed in the artwork around him. Then some of the figures from famous paintings - Matisse's Icarus, Picasso's Three Musicians, and Rousseau's The Sleeping Gypsy - step off their canvases, and join him on a tour of New York City's sites...

    Beautiful word-less picture book about a boy who decides to visit the art museum one day. Artworks from Picasso, Matisse and Rousseau come to life and join the boy on a day adventure in New York City.

    I love the rhythm of the colors, the various textures and the movement of the illustrations which are a feast for the eye!

    Whay a great book! Aptly named Imagine, it requires the reader to imagine what is happening as the pages turn. Many details will appear as you gaze at the illustrations, love the use of line to draw the eyes to important features in the art. So joyful! Be sure to read the authors note at the end.

    Recommended for all ages.
