‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

How to Talk to Children about Modern Art
by Françoise Barbe-Gall
Age Range: 12+
This is another invaluable resource for teachers and parents that help them to go beyond their own preconceptions and encourage children to discover a richer understanding of modern art. French author Françoise Barbe-Gill uses everyday language together with a question and answer format to anticipate how children will react to the 30 famous works, (featured in colour), by artists including Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso and Andy Wahol.
There is a straightforward colour coding system for three different age groups: 5-7, 8-10 and 11+ and also helpful tips for making a museum or gallery visit more interesting and fun.
