From the Publisher

Bob Raczka has introduced countless children to the pleasures of looking at art. In this book, he adds a new element to the experience-the joy of reading. You'll see all kinds of readers here, in works of art ranging in time from Antonello Da Messina's St. Jerome in His Study (1475) to Jacob Lawrence's the Library (1960), and ranging in style from Rossetti's the Day Dream to Picasso's Two Girls Reading. But no matter the era or the style, each and every painting tells a story about a reader. Art lovers and book lovers alike will enjoy this look at the fine art of reading.
