Someone just can’t get enough of Spot the Differences Art Masterpiece Mysteries series!
Dover Publications Art for Homeschool
Spot the Differences Art Masterpiece Mysteries series – Littlest Girl has scoured this series of books. She even packed them for a car ride one afternoon. What I love about this series is that in spotting the differences, the children are studying each piece from Master Artists. The original piece is on the left and from six to 14 spot the differences are on the right. Each spread of masterpieces includes fun facts about both the painting and the artist. Answers are included in the back of each book. Such a wonderful introduction to some of the world’s greatest works of art!
