About the Author

Chani Sanchez is the founder of the Museum of Amazing Art, which curates contemporary art and culture for children and their families. After the birth of her daughter Nika, and following a career of buying and archiving a prestigious collection of privately owned art, Chani began using fine art to create educational experiences for children. The goal is to help children explore their internal worlds through art, while inviting parents to tune in as well. Chani believes that when children develop a language for their feelings and emotions, they form vital brain connections that result in a plethora of good, including habituated states of well-being; the ability to connect meaningfully with others; and even the optimization of intellectual potential. Her mission is to use art as a doorway to encourage children to delve deeper into their own internal lives, and to educate parents to connect with and support this process. Chani is a native New Yorker, currently living in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with Nika and their small dog, Butter. Visit her at www.chanisanchez.com. Tina Rivers graduated from Harvard University and is completing her doctorate in art history at Columbia U

Reviews

" Pictures by contemporary artists and a wacky sense of humor make for an amusing read." -Parents Magazine "Helping children do the important work of learning to name their feelings, while distracted by awe-inspiring visuals from top-tier contemporary artists including Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Damien Hirst, and more." -Beata Bliss Lewis, M.D., Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, NYU "Chani Sanchez has written a beautiful book combining the basic feelings of happy, sad, surprised, angry, and lonely with magical pieces of art to make these feelings come alive. There Are NO Animals in This Book (Only Feelings) is a funny and entertaining way to look at art. Kids will love it and so will parents -Julie Appel, author of the Touch the Art series "I can't think of a better idea than matching contemporary artworks with a children's story. Anything that makes children look and think about art as well as encouraging learning must be applauded, especially when it's done in a manner which is both fun and instructive." ---James Stourton, former Chairman of Sotheby's UK, and author of Great Collectors of Our Time: Art Collecting Since 1945. "Inventive and fun!" -Rupert Everett, actor and art collector.
