I am sure that many experienced art educators are familiar with the Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists series but for those of you who new to the profession-start collecting now! I find these books so valuable in teaching art history and criticism to my students. The books are elementary-middle school aged appropriate, few have any nudes, and they have great cartoon illustrations that excite the kids. If you are not an art teacher, he also has a series about the US Presidents and Famous Composers. You could literally create a whole curriculum based on his books. There are 48 in the artist series alone! For more information check out:
