Barry's Scrapbook:
A Window Into Art

A Parents' Choice Award-Winning video, starring Barry Louis Polisar and featuring illustrator David Clark.

In this production of the American Library Association's Video Network, Barry is joined by a group of children at the library and features an art museum tour, several interviews with artists in their studios, and a visit to a school art classroom where art projects that kids can do at home are introduced. This video introduces artist David Clark, who has illustrated most of Barry's books and is Barry's fourth recording to win a Parents' Choice Honor Award.
