Famous paintings by Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, and other major artists expose babies and toddlers to fine art and common first words.

Art from the Start board books introduce basic concepts through fine art. The ten famous paintings in this beautiful little book instill an early love of art and help little ones to learn common first words. From “Mama, Daddy, and Baby” in Mary Cassatt’s masterpieces to “Stars, Moon, and Goodnight,” in Van Gogh’s Starry Night, each carefully chosen artwork gives children a different and beautiful way to look at familiar objects in the world around them. Similarly, Art from the Start: How is Mona Lisa Feeling? teaches feelings through famous portraits.
