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.
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.
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!
Hare with the Pearl Earring is a delightful reading experience from a creative and artistic standpoint. It is a must read for those who want to introduce their child to the beauty of art and the Masters. The title is based on Vermeer's The Girl with a Pearl Earring. In this fun adventure all of the artists are actually animals. There's Vincent Van Crow, Dove Vinci, and Andy Warthog, to name a few. The book is clever and fun--the illustrations extremely well done. My kids were engaged in the story and learned a lot about the artists along the way. There are icons on each artist's page that can be clicked to reveal little known facts about the original paintings. This story has a classic old world charm with a modern day appeal.
