This text provides many samples of Picasso’s artwork, along with a narrative from a student’s perspective on the various pieces of art. The various styles of art (including Cubism) and interesting facts about Picasso are interspersed throughout the text. There are a number of text features utilized throughout the story and an interesting presentation of information. This text could be used to introduce an art lesson, as a biographical text on Picasso, or as a basis for a text feature discussion. I recommend this book as an interesting read for junior or intermediate students, as it presents Picasso in an engaging manner.
