A hands-on way for children to learn about color - and express their creativity! With this innovative book, young artists experience the wonder of color and learn through discovery how colors mix and change. By combining unique translucent stickers, one color on top of another, children can create new colors and then change them in an instant. The reusable stickers easily peel away from the special laminated pages so that a fresh "canvas" is always at the ready. The more than two thousand stickers come in geometric shapes of various sizes, which can be arranged to create people, animals, airplanes, cars, and more. Each spread suggests a familiar setting such as home, a playground, a beach, and a farm, with a few illustrations started for inspiration. As children manipulate the circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, wedges, and ovals, they will begin to see the geometry of the world, as artists do. * Written by Metropolitan Museum of Art Staff * Hardback with 16 pages * Ages: 3 - 10 years
