This was really creative and so visually stunning. It made me smile all the way through. I love how it illustrates the power of art and the worth in visiting art museums.
An imaginative book about a boy visiting a museam and imagining the character's of the painting journingthrough his day with him. Very imaginative but no words. Elementary and up
Imagine! Based on his own childhood love of art & museums, Raul Colon shows, in a wordless story, a boy going to an art museum one day. While there, famous art by Picasso, Rousseau, & Matisse come alive & interact with him. When it is time to go home, he escorts each characters back to its original work. On the way home, he creates a mural of these characters interacting. Isn't that what an artist hopes? Inspire us to IMAGINE & create! Raul includes an inspirational note at the b ...more
I loved that this book wordlessly showed the power of art and art museums. I loved that a boy, by himself, went to the museum and using his imagination connected to the artwork on the walls.
I really like Raul Colon's work, and am sad that he never seems to get a nod from the Caldecott committee. Truthfully, my favorite this year for that award is a different title not done by Mr. Colon, but I wouldn't cry if he won. I first became aware of this artist when I read "Tomas and the Library Lady." Lovely, lovely work.
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.
Stunning wordless book!
This wordless book follows a boy as he visits the Museum of Modern Art in New York City for the first time. I love the way the pictures come to life for the boy. They dance with him across the city and it is fun to spot different popular spots around New York in the pictures. This book reminds me a bit of KATIE MEETS THE IMPRESSIONISTS but more abstract - like the art he discovers perhaps. I love the wonder that is captured in the beautiful illustrations.
