"Verde and Reynolds deliver a simple premise with a charming payoff… this "twirly-whirly" homage to a museum is, on balance, a sweet-natured and handsome celebration."—Kirkus Reviews
"Debut author Verde makes an engaging case for understanding art as an experience rather than an object."—Publishers Weekly
"The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art."—Booklist
When I see a work of art, something happens in my heart!
As a little girl tours and twirls through the halls of the art museum, she finds herself on an exciting adventure. Each piece of art evokes something new inside of her: silliness, curiosity, joy, and ultimately inspiration. When confronted with an empty white canvas, she is energized to create and express herself―which is the greatest feeling of all.
With exuberant illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, The Museum playfully captures the many emotions experienced through the power of art, and each child’s unique creative process.
