What's it about?
In EXPLORART - THE ART OF PAUL KLEE, FOR KIDS Paul Klee's artwork is featured in a fantasy story narrated and navigated by Cece and Ku, a boy and a dog from planet PK. The thousands of works of art Klee created brought PK into existence, and kids will explore four of his works ("Landscape with Yellow Birds," "Dream Town," "Castle and Sun," and "Twittering Machine") on their visit to the planet. A red balloon opens the control bar, where kids can change language, read more in depth, turn off narration or sound effects, or move around in the book.
Is it any good?
Since the featured artist mixed different styles to create art, it's fitting to mix fantasy, history, and art in a beautiful, interactive, electronic museum of Paul Klee's work. The graphics are gorgeous, and the narrator guides are fun and appealing. Kids who want to go more in depth will appreciate the "find out more" feature, and younger kids can just enjoy the story and art. Hidden surprises, such as art that moves and plants that grow, will keep kids engaged as they read and learn about Klee's art. This lovely storybook likely will appeal to animal lovers, fantasy fans, and art aficionados alike.
