My boys, ages 4 and 5, and I really enjoyed ART WITH CLAUDE. The story was interesting enough to keep my children's attention, have them ask interesting question and have them finish reading the book with a desire to do art projects!!! The pictures were vivid in color and fun to look at and discuss. The story was fantastic. I highly recommend this book for children and plan to use it my lessons while teaching various art classes with young children. I rate it 4.5 stars.
