“Help your child fall in love with art and history – for a price of a movie ticket”
If you have a child who is not really interested in art, history or reading, and just watches TV, plays video games and is on its cell phone all the time – texting – it’s tough to get them to open a book. Let alone enjoy it.
And thats exactly what we want to help you with – because after reading this adventurous guide, your child will ask you for more! Just read our reviews from parents and grandparents just like you!
The Metropolitan Museum is a huge place, and its easy to get lost inside and not know what to do or where to go. And for kids – its really easy to get bored quickly, without an interesting story.
This book is an interactive adventure style guide, that will change the look on your child’s face. There will be no more boredom and dragging feet along the museum exhibition halls.
And when your son or daughter will check this book out – they will fall in love with it, the Museum, the Art and the History.
And you are going to thank us for it 🙂
The main goal of the book: to help children fall in love with art and enjoy going to museums. The stories in this book are partially historical novels, and partially fictitious, although some of the stories’ protagonists, such as King Philip II, Princess de Broglie, Count Ugolino and some others, are historical figures.
Certain stories are written in more-or-less “adult” language and may not be accessible to young children when reading it alone, so your guidance is encouraged.
This book is for readers of all ages – from four years old and up. Older children and adults can read the book themselves, but younger kids really need your help.
Here are a few suggestions to improve your experience and have a blast while reading this adventure guide:
– Pre-read the story to your child or grandchild, explaining unknown words and phrases, and then go to the museum, bringing the book with you. Each story is accompanied by a map; by using its instructions you will easily find the the stories’ protagonists. While standing in front of statues or paintings, read the text again or remind your child of the story you’ve read.
– If you have a young child, please retell the story, or even part of it, in your own words and style that will be appropriate to him or her specifically and then go to the museum.
Some stories are longer than others, and may need to be broken down in parts – but you will quickly see what is best for you and your young audience. You may break the story into different parts and stretch them out over a few visits.
So, I invite you and your children to an adventure – that will help your storytelling abilities grow, and change the way you and your child see art, history – and Metropolitan Museum.
Enjoy your adventure – it will foster a life-long appreciation for the wonders of art!
See you inside the book for your first adventure!
