World Make Way: New Poems Inspired by Art from The Metropolitan Museum

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen." --Leonardo da Vinci

From the publisher-

Based on this simple statement by Leonardo, 18 poets have written new poems inspired by some of the most popular works in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum.

From us- 

Wow! This book is going to keep us busy for a couple weeks and has inspired my 12yo to want to go see these works in person someday. I'd love to see a sequel based on the Art Institute of Chicago! This is just a beautiful book and children from the ages of five upwards will enjoy it. Homeschoolers of the Charlotte Mason variety will I think, especially love the art included in this tome.

Verdict- Buy

I'm a lifelong bibliophile who happens to love children's books and who should have become a librarian. Instead I horde books in case of apocalypse or the enactment of a Fahrenheit 451 type law. My five kids accept my addiction and have learned to accept books in odd places.
