Touch the art
Julie Appel brings the Masters to minors with this playful series of touch-and-feel board books. Brush Mona Lisa's Hair introduces the Renaissance period with a tactile twist. Although targeted at four to eight-year-olds, even babies will enjoy combing La Giaconda's hair, stroking the horse's tail in Velazquez's Prince Baltasar or tugging at the flaming locks of Botticelli's Venus. Great fun for the young at art. Other books in the Touch the Art series include Make Van Gogh's Bed, Feed Matisse's Fish and Pop Warhol's Top. Available at Amazon.
