Children’s Book Committee – December Pick
by Susan Verde with art by Peter H. Reynolds
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2013
A girl’s encounter with famous paintings elicits a variety of emotions and ultimately stimulates her own creativity. Rhymed text and experiential, action-filled watercolors.
Our young reviewer says:
This book is inspirational. First the girl wants to look, second she wants to imitate. Third she wants to do art herself. She’s inspired. The museum lives inside her.
