  Have you ever dreamed of being able to jump into a painting and touch some of the things that you see on the canvas? Well here is your chance to do just that. Imagine being able to make the bed in Van Gogh’s bedroom, or being able to stroke the tutu of one of Edgar Degas’ ballerinas. Imagine being able to touch the sand on Mary Cassatt’s beach and wouldn’t you love to feel the soft petals of Monet’s water lilies?
  With simple and lively rhymes, wonderful reproductions of Impressionist art, and clever touch-and-feel surfaces this book makes it possible for young children to get a truly interactive experience of some of the world’s most memorable and well known paintings.
 At the back of the book readers will find an “Artifacts” section which provides further information about each of the paintings and about the artists who created them.
  This is one of the titles in the excellent “Touch the Art” series.
