    Works of art are paired with common first words in 12 different languages I don't think I've seen another book uite like this The focus is not on the fine art per se young children don't care who a painting is by but on first words from body parts Salvador Dali lips a humorous nose by Edward Lear to Michelangelo's iconic hands from the Sistine ceiling to actions play with Cassatt's children in the sand swing with Fragonard run with Greek athlete across a vase A neat idea Would like to see how children respondalthough I'm not so sure about the smiling spider for happy or Archimoboldo's fruit face for Autumn even though Autumn is the title
