Description - Museum by Susan Verde
When I see a work of art, something happens in my heart!
As a little girl tours and twirls through the halls of the art museum, she finds herself on an exciting adventure. Each piece of art evokes something new inside of her: silliness, curiosity, joy, and ultimately inspiration. When confronted with an empty white canvas, she is energized to create and express herself-which is the greatest feeling of all.
With exuberant illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, The Museum playfully captures the many emotions experienced through the power of art, and each child's unique creative process.
Praise for The Museum
"Verde and Reynolds deliver a simple premise with a charming payoff... this "twirly-whirly" homage to a museum is, on balance, a sweet-natured and handsome celebration."
"Debut author Verde makes an engaging case for understanding art as an experience rather than an object."
"The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art."
"Communicates a fresh, playful, childlike perspective on art and normalizes childlike responses to it. The idea that posing, laughing, and curious questions are all appropriate museum behavior may be a new one for both children and parents, and knowing this is sure to make for more enjoyable museum visits."
-School Library Journal
"For parents who have trouble communicating the excitement of art to their children, The Museum can serve as the starting point for a conversation. The book is also a wonderful reminder of visual art's power to encourage and empower self-expression. Children and adults will finish this book excited about their next art experience, and perhaps tempted to dance through the halls of a museum in the near future."
"This playful picture book pays tribute to the joyous effect art can have on the viewer."
