How Artists See is a series of interactive, inquiry-based books designed to teach children the art of observation and increase their visual literacy. Each volume presents eighteen diverse works of art, all devoted to a subject that children know from personal experience. Author Colleen Carroll's friendly, conversational text is filled with thought-provoking questions that promote exploration, self-expression, and fun.

In this revised and redesigned edition of the classic How Artists See Animals, more than half the artworks are newly selected--and they range from contemporary street art to an ancient Greek coin. Children will discover how Andy Warhol's rhinoceros resembles a prehistoric cave painting, how Frank Gehry turned a fish's sleek aquatic shape into architecture, and how Georgia O'Keefe captured a bird in flight using just a few curving lines.
