I Spy Shapes in Art 
By Lucy Micklethwait

      "I spy with my little eyes..." is (arguably) the most used phrase on long trips...when everyone's in a good mood anyway. It's a game that's been played for centuries and will continue to be a basic form of entertainment and learning for young toddlers who are fascinated by everything they see.

        Micklethwait has devised an incredibly devious plan to help children not only learn basic logic and recognition skills but also learn about the basics of art, as well. The book is filled with classic, as well as more recent, paintings by artists like Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse. It's an incredibly colorful book; a great way to entertain as well as teach your kids. I recommend this book to anyone who with a deep love of art, who also loves playing with their kids.
