"Giotto was not only one of the greatest painters ever, but was also a talented architect. He designed the famous bell tower in Florence, Italy, known to this day as Giotto's Tower."
This biography introduces Giotto in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Giotto, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages each. Ages 4 and up.
