More Than Meets the Eye

Seeing Art with All Five Senses

From the Series Bob Raczka's Art Adventures

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 12
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

This book lets you do more than look at beautiful art. It shows you how to feel it, taste it, smell it, hear it, and touch it! Looking at art with the right attitude can let you hear a cannon boom or know what it feels like to stroke an ermine. You can smell a stinky pig or enjoy the tastes of teatime. In another unique tour through the world of art, Bob Raczka shares his enthusiasm for his subject with youngsters while introducing them to the work of many of the world’s finest artists.
