Can You Find It Inside?
Category Description for Can You Find It? Books
My sisters and I always loved books like Where‘s Waldo?, eagerly trying to find all the hidden objects cleverly disguised in each scene. Although many times overlooked for their detail, many great paintings show just as complex a world of hidden detail that are a delight to closely examine. These bright, full-color books portray great works of art, varying in style from Egyptian to Renaissance, to medieval Arabic to Chinese scenes, and much, much more. In Can You Find It? and Can You Find it Too? 19-20 paintings are depicted on a two-page spread and a list of items to find within the painting can be found on the left edge of the spread. The books are large (10” x 10”) and each includes 19 or 20 masterpieces). It‘s not as easy as it sounds - I‘ve spent time examining and analyzing works of art in art history, and I still had a hard time finding some of these objects!
Can You Find It Inside? is intended for even younger readers. This is smaller-format (8” x 8”), and includes only 13 masterpieces, all indoor scenes. Fewer, simpler items to find are listed in rhyming verse, and several others are listed below. What terrific motivation to play close attention to great works of art. - Jess
