Heart to Heart

By Jan Greenburg

Published by Abrams, 2001

This collection of poems was edited by Greenburg, and all of the poems are inspired by pieces of modern art.

A great book for middle and high school classes as well as older elementary for use as a model for a poetry unit as students respond to selections of artwork of their own.

The Shape Game

by Anthony Browne

Published by Doubleday, 2003

Loosely based on his experiences, Anthony Browne writes a story about a family who goes to an art museum for their mother’s birthday.  Though they were anxious at first, they have a good time and talk about many interesting things during the course of their experience.  

Great examples of different way art is used and how it can be appreciated in different ways by all types and ages of people.
