Now she shows readers that paintings dont need to be understood by children in an art-historyish way- when adults stand back and let children react with abandon, their responses will amaze everyone. And their appreciation of art will soar.These poems are sprightly, elliptical, sometimes silly, sometimes serious. They teach us that its okay to simply bask in a paintings colors, or to look at just one detail, or to daydream while gazing at it. Justine Rowdens poems capture a childs imaginings--they could have been written by a child.
