The My Father's World 1st grade curriculum that we use comes with two really great art books, Exploring Landscape Art with Children and Enjoying Art with Children. They are both part of the Come Look With Me series. The books showcase the work of many famous artists. There is an explanation of the artwork as well as some historical and biographical information on the background of the artist. There are also suggested questions to help open the discussion for each piece of artwork.
Although we didn't use the books as much as I had hoped this past year with my daughter, I hope to implement some of them this upcoming school year. I was particularly interested to see the Discovering African American Art for Children.
Here are some of the other books in the series:
