- Book Intro
(English) Child Walking in the Museum of Art
The author talks about the true meaning of child education and things more precious than good grades or jobs to parents raising kids in an increasingly competitive society. And she pleas them to look to famous findings to find the values they want their children to embrace in their hearts despite changing times.
The book introduces eight values that must be passed on to children: “Understanding, creativity, observation, empathy, sincerity, sensitivity, wisdom, and hope.” The author thereafter introduces the masterpieces providing a peek at these values. From Monet’s Water Lilies to Munch’s The Scream of Nature, most are paintings that we so readily passed by due to familiarity.
