    1. I picked up this book thinking I d love it And I m so sorry to report that it is not the case There are all kinds of art museums some of which specialize in certain art Folk Art Museum, Craft Museum , and some of which are of the big old sort Louvre, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago that are filled with all sorts of art This book looks in a general way at the latter The book s subtitle is A Whimsical Look Behind the Scenes and I suppose it is whimsical as the tour is being gi [...]

    3. Summary A broken ticket stub gets left behind at a museum one night and gets taken on a tour of the entire museum by Daisy, a name tag Stub learns about who works in a museum and what you can find in a museum Evaluation This is a very creative way to teach children about museums The author uses typically inanimate objects that you might see in a museum and brings them to life to talk about all of the important features in a museum Teaching Point I would want to use this book as a way to turn my [...]

Original posted on my website mardixon I first heard of Meet Me at the Art Museum via Twitter when Museum Secrets tweeted how great the book was I immediately knew I had to get my hands on it and was thrilled when it was sent to me.The book is told from the eyes of Stub, a entry ticket stub who was left on the floor of an art museum and missed by the cleaner during his routine This leads to Stub meeting some of the people that work within the art museum Author David Goldin creatively takes us wi [...]

    7. Meet me at the Museum by David Goldin is essentially an introduction to art museums designed in the form of a illustrated tour administered by a Hello, My Name is badge and a rejected ticket stub The end pages begin the tour by literally mapping out the story s trajectory From there, the tour winds through the pages of the book while it winds through the halls of the art Museum.The reader meets Stub as he sleeps in the marble floor of the museum The first few pictures appear in full bleed as the [...]

    8. Meet Me at the Art Museum by David Goldin is one of the easiest to take instructive picture books I can recall reading in quite some time It uses the old night at the museum situation with a docent s name tag giving a ticket stub an after hours tour.This thing gets really simplistic, going so far as to explain what a coat check room is and that there are signs all over the place telling you what to do But, you know, it s a picture book It s for kids who presumably have never been into a museum W [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this informational picture book and its unique differences from other picture books I have read Before reading the book, I took a look at the end pages and noticed a slight difference in which the front end cover is a map of the first floor of the museum and the back end cover is a map of the second floor of the museum Drawn into the maps on the end pages are dotted lines which after the reading the book was noticed to be the trail the stub and name tag took on their tour The re [...]

    10. This utilitarian book would be best for right before a field trip to the museum, to discuss the various people, sections, and what you might expect to see and do Everything right down to the lost found and the security cameras The backgrounds are simple graphic hints of hallways, walls, and corners This spare style was a little bit of a strange contrast to the digital reproductions of actual art works with all their complexity The narrative arc of the stub wanting to be part of a museum was cute [...]

    11. I have real mixed feelings about this book While I think it does an excellent job presenting all aspects of an art museum, I just dislike talking inanimate objects in this case a talking name tag named Daisy and talking ticket stub named Stub I would have related to this much better if the author used two people That said this book would be great for a family planning a big trip to the art museum The illustrations are bright and colorful, a map of the museum layout is included just like you rece [...]

    12. An animated ticket stub is given a tour of the museum one night by the docent s helper, a name badge named Daisy Together they discover the different areas of the library, from the library to the exhibits, from the lost and found to the damaged items room Miniatures of real artwork are featured throughout There is also a glossary at the back, along with descriptions of the included art pieces.

    13. Great real life pictures, but otherwise kind of boring This is the kind of book I could see sharing with kids who don t have the chance to get to the library, or maybe showing to kids before a visit to the museum Most of the information, however, would be best given by a actual tour guide, for most kids.

    14. I am not sure why the average rating is only about 3 stars This was a great children s book It is a behind the scenes tour of an art museum through a name tag and ticket stub s point of view This is a great book for young children Also, this would be a wonderful resource for art teachers and Pre K 2nd I loved it

    15. A fun way to introduce kids to museums and all the things that happen there I really liked the voices of the various objects that Stub encountered and his interest in all the different types of art Reading this made me want to hop a flight to NYC and stroll around the MET.

    16. A very clever book What a wonderful introduction to the workings of an art museum and to some great works of art as well It must have been fun for David Goldin to put this book together and to play curator for his book museum

    17. My seven and ten year olds enjoyed it The book includes helpful definitions of museum words an adult might not think to explain, such as gallery, in a fun story with an anthropomorphic ticket stub and name tag.

    22. Offers insight into behind the scenes aspects of a museum but the story itself is not that interesting and feels a bit forced.

    25. Rad idea, shaky execution The text was fine and all, but the art I dunno, seemed cheap Like 1990s 3D design class art I d still use this book in class to learn about museums.

    26. This is a nice introduction to an Art Museum, great preparation for a child who hasn t been before.

    27. Good premise, but too much whim and not enough substance to pull it off.

    28. This is a cute tour of an art museum It would be a good one to share before a field trip or visit to a museum It would work well with Seen Art by Lane Smith as prep.
