The Come Look With Me series was created by art teacher and curator Gladys Blizzard to introduce youngsters to art. There are at least 10 books in the series. Each book reproduces 12 works of art. The series is designed for parents and/or teachers to interact with children; therefore, each page of artwork faces a page of text which includes simple questions to stimulate discussion, brief biographical notes concerning the artist, and few notes regarding the artwork being presented
Jennifer Tarr Coyne's Discovering Women Artists for Children presents 12 works spanning many centuries. Included are Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1652), American impressionist Mary Cassat (1844-1926), Minimalist painter Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), sculptor Louise Nevelson (1899-1988), and more.
