‘QUICK READS for Kids’ offer children an effortless zippy tour through the life and paintings of one famous artist. They are simplified versions of their sister series ‘SMART READS for Kids’. The heavy educational stuff (like the new vocab, maths and history) is omitted, leaving just the essentials, the fun cartoon footprints and the bizarre trivia. A few simple sentences with the key facts accompany each of the 15 paintings so these books are great for younger children or for older ones wanting ‘the low down without the slow down’.
They’ll also benefit from all the free online resources already in place for the ‘SMART READS for Kids’ books, like the van Gogh colouring sheets. [Visit theportraitplace.co.uk/smart-reads-for-kids.php]
All the colour images in the books are large and high quality. For those using GREYSCALE KINDLES there is an online colour slide show of the paintings which can be accessed via a password given at the end of this Kindle book (a free test slide show allows you to try before you buy; select ‘Hardware Solutions’ from the ‘SMART READS for Kids’ dropdown menu).
