Illustrated by Rose Blake
Our bodies might all differ in shape, and form, and frame, but think how dull the world would be if we were all the same…
Our skin tones might all vary;
we're every shade and hue.
Some people think we look surreal,
and frankly, yes, we do!
But we can make you tilt your head,
and see the world anew.
Celebrate difference and diversity with this wonderful and beautiful book that tells children it’s OK to be different – in fact it’s perfect to be different. Told from the perspective of works of art, the book illustrates different styles and movements and demonstrates that there is no single masterpiece in galleries, or with people – we’re all works of art in our own special way.
Illustrated by the artist Rose Blake, and packed with different types of art on every page, the book also includes a handy beginners’ guide to the various styles of art – from prehistoric to cubist, ancient Egyptian to contemporary.
Written by bestselling author, Mark Sperring, the text is lyrical, funny and perfect for reading aloud.
Pairing bright and engaging illustrations with relatable rhymes, this beautiful hardbound book celebrates diversity while teaching kids about different styles of art: from prehistoric cave art to surrealism, cubism, pop art, and contemporary art.
Includes an appendix that provides brief descriptions of different art styles along with mentions of their most significant works and practitioners to encourage further exploration.
