Great introduction to sculpture; love the terminology and the photos of great pieces. Especially like how this book models age appropriate art appreciation--walking all around (with our hands behind our backs), looking, looking, looking, talking, then sketching and working with clay in response. AND THEN using the original art as a jumping off point to make your own art. Yay! Putting a hold on their other Look Look Look book, which is about painting. I would have liked short definitions of the art terms (bust, statue, relief, mobile, etc.), either on the page or in the back of the book. ( )

This book tells the tale of 3 mice. They sneak into a museum, and marvel at a sculpture. They look at it, draw it, sculpt it, and make it themselves. They also organize and arrange their creations based on imaginative ideas.
This book can teach children about shapes, color, creativity, and organization. Throughout the book, examining, and "looking" is strongly encouraged. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761461329, Hardcover)

After sneaking into a museum, three tiny mice discover that sculptures can be big or little, textured or smooth, and made with different materials. Some stand alone, others are in a group, and still others move. The mice look at the front, the back, and the sides of a slate sculpture by Barbara Hepworth. They see shapes, and shapes within shapes. They think, feel, and then create their own sculptures. Wallace has integrated photographs of real sculptures into her cut-paper artwork to point out the diverse forms that sculptures can take. She reinforces the value of creativity and art literacy in a child's life. A craft activity and short biography of Barbara Hepworth are included.

Three mice "borrow" a postcard which is a reproduction of a sculpture, and from it they learn about color, pattern, line, and shape. Includes instructions for making and sending a postcard.
