Omaha Public Schools - Kathie Shepoka

"This book about collages includes everything from mosaics to texture. Each collage shown is a different example of what each could be made with and different materials that could be used. The pictures are self-explanatory and the examples are specific. This book has a great glossary included that will help the students with different vocabulary. It also includes these features: Table of Contents, Glossary, Find Out More, and Index. – Kathie Shepoka, Pawnee School Omaha Public Schools 1/23/2013" - Omaha Public Schools

The Horn Book

"With only two sentences per page, these are simple introductions to some types of visual arts for young children. Illustrations include reproductions of famous works in different styles. Photos show children painting, drawing, and making collages, helping readers see connections between the featured art and possibilities for their own creative work, as well as providing inspiration and encouraging expressiveness." - The Horn Book

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"In this entry in the Start with Art series, you sometimes can’t tell the professional collages from those of youthful amateurs, and therein lies the appeal. With the right cocktail of instinct, luck, and dedication, the mixing of materials known as collage can create magic in the unlikeliest of places and with the unlikeliest of materials. Aside from minor nods to history ("The Romans used mosaics to decorate floors"), Thomas places her focus on the sheer variety of examples, from clearly accessible figures and scene studies to abstract works out to produce purely emotional responses in audiences. Young readers will be inspired by the anything-goes list of materials—wood, paper scraps, fabric, plants—though a closing lesson keeps things simple by showing them how to cut up a magazine to create a funny self-portrait. A bit haphazard and unfocused, but the right kid will draw plenty of inspiration from the provided examples.— Daniel Kraus Booklist 11/1/2011" - Booklist

Richmond Public Schools - Dinah Emerson

"Young readers are introduced to collage as an art form. The brief text includes explanations about how people make collages, what materials can be used, and what collages can show. A suggested activity to begin making collages is described step-by-step with a web site appended to find additional ideas. The Start with Art series is a useful purchase for a basic introduction in the primary grades to art forms. This title answers basic questions about collages and uses simple statements to explain and illustrate the form. Children will enjoy trying the self-portrait collage. – Dinah Emerson, Ginter Park Elementary School Richmond Public Schools8/9/2012" - Richmond Public Schools
