I have come across a few books for children which, while not conservation
books, do discuss the materials and construction of paintings and textiles,
and thus offer some information parallel to conservation.  My favorite titles

    Paint and Painting. Scholastic Voyages of Discovery: Visual
    Arts. Copyright 1993, Scholastic printing, 1994.
    (this book does have a page on conservation, which in my view,
    contains some misleading information, but overall, the
    information in the book is good and well presented.)

    Eyewitness Art: Looking At Paintings. Jude Welton. Dorling
    Kindersley, 1994.

    Unravelling Fibers. Patricia Keeler and Francis McCall, Jr.
    Atheneum, 1995.
