A little bit science, a little bit history, and a little bit geography, with great visualizations and clear explanations.

Every morning, Monet wakes up early to go paint the Seine River as the light hits it differently with each movement of the rising sun.

I was really excited to read this book, seeing how the cover seemed to really capture the essence of Monet's impressionistic art style. After reading it, I can confirm that the illustrator did an excellent job with this throughout every page.

However, the text is frankly kind of dull. There is nothing lyrical or captivating about any of it. Also, as a biography, this is lacking in any amount of detail, choosing to focus only on a brief timeframe of Monet's life and work. Even the backmatter doesn't add much more context. That being said, I did like the message (stated very clearly) about art being hard work that takes time, energy, and patience.

Come for the lovely illustrations but that's really all of note.

This would be a great book for Primary or Intermediate Readers
This book is about Mark Chagall's life and all that he experienced growing up in Russia.
This would be a great book to have to display how pictures can tell a story about someone's life as there are not very many words. This book would also be helpful during a autobiography paper project as it displays one way to write about your story.

This book is beautifully illustrated story of the record setting 800ft five of the first Bathysphere in the 1930's. The author/illustrator went to great lengths to build an exciting story while giving children a moment in history. Even the 4 year old loved it.
