About the Author
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest museum in the Western Hemisphere and the world’s most encyclopedic art museum. Founded in 1870, the Museum embraces more than two million works of art spanning 5,000 years of world culture, from prehistory to the present, in all artistic media, and at the highest levels of creative excellence.
Lee Bennett Hopkins is an award-winning author and poet. He has published more than 100 books of poetry, including City I Love and Behind the Museum Door. He lives in Cape Coral, Florida.
"The book’s true spotlight is on diversity—in the background of the poets, the style of the artworks, and the method of interpretation chosen by each poet . . . The poems emphasize that in art and poetry there is no right answer, rather a myriad of different interpretations. Accordingly, there is something for every young reader in this delightful collection."
"The specially commissioned poems, which easily lend themselves to reading aloud, are well matched with their individual artwork and can be excellent springboards for further discussion about the picture."
