Alexander Calder: Meet the Artist!

"This is the perfect book to set kids off on a lifelong love of art. This marvelous volume is filled with flaps, pop-ups, colorful illustrations (with lots of red, of course), and little surprises that are so befitting of Calder’s own spirit, I’d imagine him reading it himself and smiling from cover to cover."
Cool Mom Picks

"Beautiful… If you have a little artist at home, they will love learning about Calder. He was just a big kid himself, making colorful art for art’s sake. I’m totally inspired to start working on Calder projects now." 
Poppy Haus

"Art isn’t always two-dimensional, so why should books about it be? …Kids can see Calder’s most important sculptures pop up on the page, lift flaps to see some of his drawings, and actually design some of their own work with the included instructions."
