    One thought on “Meet Me at the Art Museum: A Whimsical Look Behind the Scenes”

    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 i [...]

    2. 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 t [...]

    3. Leaning against. Not listening. Not talking. Not listening. Touching. We can't touch in that museum, in fact. And there's a badge that says, "No touching!"

    4. 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 [...]

    5. Originally posted on Creative Madness Mama.*This post is updated with my new format on May 7, 2015, thanks to the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin. A Whimsical Look Behind the Scenes Meet Me at the Museum is a cute behind-the-scenes field trip in a book. Full of imagination and fun, adventurous readers can learn bits and pieces of what an art museum is for as well as spark an interest to go see one in person. Full of vocabulary to learn who is who and what is what at the museum. It would be a fun re [...]

    6. 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 b [...]

    7. "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 mus [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 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 museu [...]

    10. 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 [...]

    11. 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.

    12. 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.

    13. 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!

    14. 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.

    15. 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!

    16. 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.

    17. Readers will learn about different jobs and parts of a museum. Could be used before a field trip to a museum.

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

    19. Cute simple book describing what goes on behind the scenes of an art museum. Good read to supplement a visit to one.

    20. 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 more about museums.

    21. 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.
