MoMA books for kids. Young Frank is about Frank Lloyd Wright. A great opportunity for you children! They can know and enjoy arts!
Discover MoMA’s world-famous collection with the first title in a brand new series of storybooks for kids by award-winning authors and illustrators. Young Frank, Architect by Frank Viva follows the adventures of Young Frank, an aspiring architect who lives in New York City with his grandfather, Old Frank, an architect. Young Frank likes to use anything he finds—macaroni, pillows, toilet paper, shoes—to make buildings that twist, chairs with zigzag legs, and even entire cities. But Old Frank disapproves, saying architects only create buildings. One day they go to The Museum of Modern Art, where they see work by architects like Frank Gehry and Frank Lloyd Wright, and Old Frank learns that architects can do more than he thought.
Young Frank, Architect is available now only at the MoMA Stores, before its wide release in September.
