    What a fantastic book We used it in our homeschool when studying Calder This book really brought his work to life It inspired my kids 9 and 7 y o to not only play with the interactive pages in the book, but to create and imagine beyond the pages I hesitated when buying this book because I was torn between it and a storybook about Calder and I am so glad I chose this one I couldn t be happier with it This is such a fun book representing such a fun artist Don t hesitate and miss out like I almost did Although, I can see where this wouldn t be a good book for littles that like to pull or rip flaps and pull tabs out of books Other than that I would highly recommend it

    Such a great book The hands on aspect was perfect for kids It really inspired my kids to not only appreciate the artist but also want to create their own art We loved it so much we ordered two others in the series I hope the author keeps making books like this

    I live in Chicago and am a Calder fan I purchased this as a gift for my nephew, Alexander He was beside himself when I gave it to him and has spoken to me about it repeatedly since he received it I see how he is making connections with architecture and art all around him, motivated by this book He is a young artist, constantly exploring Would definitely recommend this

    I bought this book as a visual inspiration for my young dancers Their ballet piece for their recital is to reflect an art inspiration I thought Calder s mobiles and stabiles were the perfect visual for their choreography When I brought the book to class, these dancers, grades 4 6, loved the book, wanted to touch all the pop ups it is a good book for young students, colorful and interactive.

    I was quite disappointed There wasn t much to it and I felt it didn t capture any of the Calder magic.
