Staff Reviews


This is a fantastic book about how to visit museums for kids 8-12.  It's a guided journal that teaches kids to look at museums of any type and also explains how museums work.  After some general information that applies to most museums, it starts with planning your adventure, then proceeds to documenting the things and people you see, how you feel about them, and continues to the end where you summarize your visit and talk about your favorite things!  Wonderful illustrations.  This would make a great gift with a museum membership for a family!!!  Another great book by the same author is Take Me Home : An Activity Journal For Young Explorers for when you can't leave the house: a new way to look at your own home.

Description


With its stylish design, zingy illustrations and handy size to pop in a bag, Take Me To Museums is a must-have accompaniment to every museum or gallery visit. The book is divided into five 'adventure' chapters. Every time children take a trip to a museum, a new adventure begins. On their journey around the gallery spaces they are encouraged to record their thoughts and draw what they see. Each chapter is unique - so on every visit they will discover something different. Packed with facts about museums all over the world, the book also includes a timeline of museum history and a glossary. To wrap it all up there's a section for making notes and a page for comparing the five adventures.

Writer and illustrator Mary Richards is author of The Modern Art Journal (Tate Publishing), Splat: The Most Exciting Artists of All Time (Thames & Hudson) and co-author of ArtSongs, a set of songs about art and artists (with David Schweitzer) for Tate. Mary was Art Publisher at the Hayward Gallery and a Project Editor at Tate Publishing. She lives in London with four children, two cats and a large collection of Lego.
