In The Hare with the Pearl Earring Julie Dweck uses an unique approach to teach children about famous artists and the masterpieces they created. Her interactive ebook combines a fictional story with factual information to make learning enticing.

Henny, the hare, is given the extraordinary opportunity of modeling for several famous artists like Vincent Van Crow, Picatso, Dove Vinci and others. Each artist paints a fantastic portrait of Henny in their own unique style with the hopes of being named the best artist in the town. Henny, loves all the portraits, but one holds a special place in her heart. All the artists create sensational pieces making choosing just one a difficult task. Find out who is named "Best Artist" and which piece of art Henny likes most.

Patricia Saco is very talented and does an exquisite job illustrating the story and creates a masterpiece of her own.

The ebook also features icons which redirect readers to the real artists represented by the characters in the story. Readers have the chance to learn facts about the artist as well as see a piece of artwork created by them.

With art becoming scarce in many schools across the country The Hare with the Pearl Earring is an effective tool parents can use to help children experience art in an entertaining way.

I really enjoyed The Hare with the Pearl Earring and highly recommend reading it.

Impressive. This book, of course, contained the wonderful rhyming of Julia Dweck but in addition to that there was so much more. The illustrations are really a work of art that adults and children alike can appreciate. There is an interactive touch to the pages that teach all of us just a bit more about some of the most famous paintings and artists. It's really quite amazing how much they were able to fit into this tiny book.

Julia Dweck and Patricia Saco have created a masterpiece! Pun intended. The Hare with the Pearl Earring is a child's introduction to a few of the world's greatest masters. Join little Henny the hare as she models for the likes of Van Gogh, Picasso, Da Vinci, and others.
Here's the thing, children will be learning about some of the great masters, but they won't even realize it. They'll be having fun listening to their mom or dad reading the wonderful prose. That is until they tap on the icons on the pages and view a picture of the artist's paintings, along with a bit of information about the artist themselves. What a great time you will have making memories as you read this e-book to your children. You will also love the clever illustrations created by Patricia Saco.
It's truly a treasure, and a bit of genius. Do not miss this lovely e-book. I highly recommend it!

I stumbled upon Hare with the Pearl Earring while looking for a fun summer read for my little one. What a find!!
The rhyming text is lots of fun to share with a young child. My son loved learning about all of the different artists in this fast paced fantasy adventure set inside an enchanted village. The interactivity was really well done. My son and I enjoyed clicking on all the facts and learning things even I never knew about the artists and their art. Kudos to Dweck and Saco.

Usually I have to find a book that either appeals to my son or my daughter. In this case, both of my children loved The Hare with the Pearl Earring. Neither child knew much about the original painting (The Girl with the Pearl Earring), but they were equally interested to learn more about Vermeer and his art after reading Henny the Hare's adventure. There were great true tidbits thrown in, along the way. My kids were fascinated to learn that some art historians think that the Mona Lisa may have actually been the artist Da Vinci, himself. It was a combination of the wonderful art, the adventure, and the entertaining true facts that kept my kids engaged and mesmerized from beginning to end. This is a truly worthwhile read. It opens the doors to great storytelling and culture.

What a great way to introduce kids to the great Masters of the art world! Hare with the Pearl Earring is a great blend of learning and fun. All of the animals are based on famous artists. The interactive pop-up content provides young readers with fun facts about paintings and their varied styles, including pop, cubism, impressionism, and abstract. It's a captivating read for someone who wants to share the history of art with a young reader. Julia Dweck has proven that "edutainment" can be fun. The illustrator, Patricia Saco, has really captured the feel of each artist's famous painting. The two have packed a lot of value in one ebook.

The Hare With the Pearl Earring opens with the character, Henny Hare who is a model and patron of the arts. Blending fantasy with art history, the story goes on to introduce young readers to an array of animal artists whose names not only sound like, but also hint at their real-world counterparts. In addition to full-color illustrations and rhyming text, the interactive icons add to the reading experience by revealing information about each artist and their work. I would highly recommend this lively tale for the budding art enthusiasts and their parents as well.
