Kahlo's Koalas: 1, 2, 3, Count Art with Me based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
I loved this book a lot, it was very cute and is such a good way to teach counting while introducing little ones to all kinds of artwork. My sister-in-law is an art history major and has a 6 week old that I definitely plan on introducing this book too when she's a little bit older.
This is a child's counting book that adults are sure to love too! The illustrations are bright, appealing and in the style of ten different artists including Monet, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack, Frida Kahlo etc. At the end of the book, there is additional information on each of the artists. The picture book is an appealing addition (pun recognized) to the counting book genre. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. I truly enjoyed this one.
I really loved this book and so did my granddaughter. The arts, appreciation of it as well as the opportunity to express yourself through art is extremely important in a developing mind. To introduce young children to various styles of art while learning to count and about different animals is a win for them. This book has beautiful illustrations in the style of famous artists such as Frieda Kahlo, Roy Lichtenstein, and Vincent Van Gogh to name a few. I love the text in this book as well. It is written in alliteration form using the artist's name that is being demonstrated, such as Matisse Monkeys. Even though this is a board book, I recommend it to parents and teachers of preschool, kindergarten and primary aged children. It would definitely work in an art lesson showing different styles in a fun and different way. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon my request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
A vibrant, fun, engaging book for learning to count. I love the idea of taking beautiful art and exposing young children learning their numbers to it. The colors will draw any toddler in and make it a fun experience for parents as well. I also appreciated learning a bit about the artists and their work in the gallery at the end of this book. It’s a great way to learn while having fun.
Beautifully illustrated book! This book takes a basic task of teaching the numbers 1 through 10 and makes it special. Each page has exquisite illustrations done in a style similar to one of ten famous artists. Not only is it a learning tool, it is a treat for the eyes. This book will help the young ones in mastering their numbers 1 through 10 and teach them a general appreciation for the beauty of artwork. While at the same time, the adults will be pleased by the detail and creativity of the illustrations in this book. Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
