"Your books make me wish I was a teacher again so that I could share them with my students. Art appreciation is a precious gift for children, both because it's so valuable and such a challenge for lay-people like me to impart - but your books make sharing the joys of art easy, inviting, and fun. Thank you." Vanessa Wright, Book Reviewer, Horses in Art Magazine


When researchers want to know what the American West looked like around the turn of the 20th Century, they go to the art of Charles Russell and Frederic Remington. They could also review women's art. These three books explore the artist's works through looking questions geared toward differentiated learning for grades K-7.

Question for this picture. Are these cowboys or cavalry?
