Hopkins . . . captures the wonder and exuberance of childhood."School Library Journal"
Fourteen poems on the many dazzling collections featured in museums
The art, artifacts, and anthropological treasures found in museum collections are coupled with stunning poetry by acclaimed writers Lee Bennett Hopkins, Jane Yolen, Myra Cohn Livingston, Rebecca Kai Dotlich, and many more in this unique volume. Perfect for art, natural history, and childrens museums, this is also an ideal book for classroom teachers before they bring their students on a museum visit. The lively verse captures the wonder and amazement of the exhibition experience, from mummies to medieval relics, and from fine art to fossils.
Selected by childrens poetry luminary Lee Bennett Hopkins and illustrated by award-winning artist Stacey Dressen-McQueen, "Behind the Museum Door" will allow young readers to bring the experience home with them to enjoy again and again, long after the museum doors are closed.
