It's time to go on a special museum trip with ten mice pals to guide you. This book shows that visiting an art museum is an occasion for fun, play, and participation. There is so much to see, learn, and think and talk about.

Each gallery in this imaginary museum groups paintings by subject, such as pets, music, portraits, and landscapes. And on the walls are versions of eighty masterpieces from Vermeer to van Gogh, along with informative text and exuberant commentary.

Educational, engrossing, and delightful throughout, this preschool-perfect museum primer can be used in endless ways by children, parents, teachers, and art educators. Both a child's-eye view of a museum and a tour of some of the world's greatest paintings, this extraordinary picture book will help lay the foundation for a life-time love of art.
