A lifelong love of art is one of the greatest gifts an adult can bestow on a child - and no period of art is better loved or more available to children than Impressionism. Monet and the Impressionists for Kids invites children to delight in Cassatt's mothers and children, Renoir's dancing couples, and Gaugin's island scenes; 21 activities explore Monet's quick shimmering brush strokes, Cezanne's brilliant rectangles of color, Seurat's pointillism, and Degas's sculpture-like circles of dancers. Kids will learn how the artists' friendships sustained them through repeated rejection by the Parisian art world, and how they lived, painted, and thrilled to the vibrant life of Paris at the approach of the 20th century. A resource section guides readers to important museums and Web sites around the world.

Wow! I love this book! I am currently teaching a unit on Impressionist painting to my daughter and this book really grabbed her attention with the beginning paragraphs on the first Impressionist exhibition and the reactions of the public to such 'madness'. It is a great book for middle school, having more detailed information than the younger books, but still written in a very accessible style. The activities are great too; once again, not too childish.
FANTASTIC!
