I'm not sure why, but early on we decided that we wanted Miloh to know how to speak and read. Therefore decided to read to him. I know it's weird but we're just like that.
It's a simple 7 spread book with art words like Moma, Dada, Van Gogh and such.
I was an art major so I got stuck on a few of the spreads. Sure Van Gogh is in his style as Dali is in his and such.
But cubism is just blocks stacked up, in more of a pop style if anything. Plus why is MoMA in there? It's not a style.
That's when I hated the book.
But after reading it a few times I got it.
MoMA is a pic of a kid with his mom. Dada is a dad. Dali a doll and Cubism was blocks. I'm sure Miloh got it at his young age and I was a bit of a fool.
The art major in me then loved the irreverence of it...because art should be fun and not untouchable. Now it's one of my favorite books to read to Miloh...although it's a bit short.
So check it out...and wait for some upcoming book reports where I rip the books to shreds.
