For children who like art; I Like Art: Renaissance (Stanitsas)

I wish that this series had existed when I was growing up.  Each short volume is introduced by a contemporary child and explains the period, the qualities of the paintings done at that time, the most well-known artists of the period and, in addition, shows a number of reproductions.  There is a handy glossary in the back.

As an adult, I have taken a number of art history classes.  Nonetheless, I learned some things when I read this short book.  For example, I now know that the Renaissance was the first period in which more people could afford to buy artworks.

I recommend collecting this series for a child in your life.  Who knows what future art historian may be inspired?

Thanks NetGalley and the publisher.
