Come Look with Me: Discovering African American Art for Children introduces children to twelve important works of art. The Come Look with Me series of interactive art books from Lickle Publishing offers both children and adults a whole new way of encountering works of art, one which engages the imagination as much as the eye. Well suited for both individual and classroom use, Discovering African American Art for Children pairs great works of art with through-provoking questions. Children are invited to wake up with with Romare Bearden's Morning, and to explore and join in important ceremonies from Clementine Hunter's Baptism to Ellis Wilson's The Funeral Procession. They can explore the ideas and the unique struggles of African American artists and their contribution to the culture of the United States.
