About the Author:

Lucy Micklethwait says, "I began to play 'I Spy' with paintings with my own children when they were very young. Over and over again my children pointed out things which I had never noticed before—an apple that had fallen to the floor, a funny-shaped shoe, an expression on a face. Although we were simply 'looking at pictures,' I was well aware that, by making these paintings accessible, I was enabling my children to build up a store of images in their own minds which must inevitably lead to some interest in fine art." Ms. Micklethwait's books for children include I Spy Shapes in Art; I Spy: An Alphabet in Art; I Spy Two Eyes: Numbers in Art.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Like I Spy: An Alphabet in Art (1992) and I Spy: Numbers in Art (1993) Micklethwait's latest title uses stunning reproductions of artworks to introduce elemental concepts. Here, the focus is on shapes. Preschoolers will be able to search for ovals, squares, hearts, and more within large, sharp images of famous art, such as Henri Matisse's paper collage The Snail and Paul Klee's painting Around the Fish, which are set against glossy white pages. The text is just a few boldface words per page: "I spy with my little eye a rectangle." The concept may be simplicity itself, but children will want to return again and again to the inviting pages, where they can point out everything else that they "spy" within the richly detailed images. Language arts teachers may also want to use this with older children as a springboard for story-writing exercises. A handsome offering with appeal to a wide age group. Gillian Engberg
