Product Description

{WINNER! Best Animated Film, New England Children's Film Festival}

Here she comes, right from the pages of the bestselling book LINNEA IN MONET'S GARDEN. The charming tale about a little girl's love for Impressionist Claude Monet's paintings is now brought to life in full animation. Join Linnea and her friend Mr. Bloom as they set off to Paris, and then to Monet's garden in Giverny. Watch with delight as they discover the real places which served as inspiration for their favorite paintings. And marvel as the paintings and the garden come to "life" in live action.

LINNEA IN MONET'S GARDEN is a unique blend of imagination and education, teaching children about the art and life of one of the most important painters of the 20th century, while entertaining them with the mystery and beauty of art and nature.

Amazon.com

Lena Anderson and Christina Bjork have turned their popular children's book into a charming, simply animated introduction to the work of Impressionist painter Claude Monet. Linnea, a vibrant little Swedish girl, is intrigued by the paintings of gardens she sees in a book in the home of her friend, Mr. Bloom. Together they go to Paris, where they visit the Marmottan, a little-known museum with an exceptional collection of Monets. Linnea discovers the familiar paintings are just "blobs and smears" up close, but become recognizable flowers when seen at the proper distance. Mr. Bloom explains that Monet sought to suggest the play of light on water and foliage, rather than recording it in detail. The next day, they make their pilgrimage to Giverny, to walk amid the scenery Monet painted. Linnea is bright and well-mannered but never priggish; her relationship with Mr. Bloom suggests mutual affection and respect. The animation itself is fairly minimal--comparable to Saturday morning cartoons--but the story and well-photographed paintings make up for its limits. Linnea could easily be expanded into a series that would teach children about the life and work of other important artists. --Charles Solomon

I am an elementary art teacher & use this video while teaching Claude Monet. I never tire of watching it, & neither do the kids. I use it in my third grade curriculum, but kids in grades 4-6 request to see it again & again! I also use the book of the same name which is nearly identical to the video. It is 30 minutes long, just right for young attention spans, and allows time at the end of class to make lily pads & flowers "from Monet's Garden"! My favorite lesson. :o)

I use this video in an "Arts Alive" presentation I do for third graders. I have used it for 3 years and it is VERY well received by the classes. It really brings Monet's paintings alive and shows them that art still lives. It is a combo of cartoon story, still photos of Monet's works and live-action video of his home in Giverny. A perfect choice for any school arts program of a great video for kids of any age.

I bought this video after reading all of the reviews. My daughter grew up with Barney and other TV shows, loves Disney animated films and is generally an aficionado of the visual television/movie medium! I was worried that the pace of this might be too slow and that the criticism mentioned by one reviewer would apply in my daughter's situation. I wanted her to "learn" about Monet, however, so decided to try it out.
She's not an artist and loves action-packed videos, but still loved this video. She immediately identified with Linnea (but laughingly said Linnea is more polite than she!) and loved the interaction with the old man, Mr. Bloom. She was entranced with the glimpses of Monet from photographs and paintings intertwined with the video. Linnea helped her see how the paintings looked "splotchy" up close but were beautiful impressions when viewed from further back.
The only criticism I have is that the mouths don't quite move appropriately with the words being said! This is distracting (and is no doubt why some reviewers thought the video was poor quality). It didn't bother my six year old, however, and after a while, I didn't notice it either.
The video brings Monet to life by the appreciation of his work that it engenders. Its peaceful feeling and pace mesh with the subject and enhance understanding.

The book Linnea in Monet's Garden has been a favorite in our house for years, and when I found the DVD some time ago I bought it right away. Since then it has been played over and over again. By myself, but mostly by my six years old daughter. We have been to Monet's garden in Giverny, and watching the video brings back such good memories.
The vidoe is so creatively made, with the story of the small girl Linnea and her old friend and neighbour Mr. Bloom. They are both lovers of flowers and of painters, and Monet is one of their favorites. They both dream about going from Sweden where they live, to Giverny and Monet's garden outside Paris. And wonder over all wonders, one day their dream comes true. They travel together to Paris and to Giverny, and we are invited to go with them.
The story is told in a charming way, with alot of illustrations from their trip and we also get to know several of Monet's paintings. Both children and adults will learn alot about Monet and his life, and about the impressionist period in art.

Charles Kuralt was the poet of small town America the way Vin Scully is the poet of Dodger Stadium. Relaxed, warm, folksy and deceptively insightful. He had a way of setting you at ease and somehow convincing you that the entire cosmos could be found in the minutia of this one fleeting moment. His beloved little program, 'ON THE ROAD' (1967-80) in which he traveled the backroads of America in a motorhome to show us the real heart of the country was eagerly anticipated by countless people every weekend - myself included.

Once every couple of years, when I need a little lift, I get out my boxed set of THE BEST OF 'ON THE ROAD' WITH CHARLES KURALT' and pop in one of the three 60 minute tapes. I invariably end up watching all three in one sitting. It's as if once I'm on the road, I can't quite convince myself to pull into a rest stop. Just a few days ago I created a new Amazon Listmania List called, 'EXPLORE THE U.S.A.' in which I included this set. And then I felt inspired to view the tapes again, and decided to review them since currently only two other people have.

Tape 1 - THE AMERICAN HERITAGE: We start out at the beginning (always a good place to start) when Kuralt takes us to the roaring wind-swept dunes on Roanoke Island, North Carolina and the site that John White and the early English settlers of 1587 decided to call "Home." We see where they lived and ponder the great mystery of their disappearance.

Then it's off to Independence Hall in Philadelphia where independence from England was first declared, and where the U.S. Constitution was later hammered out. Kuralt relives those tumultuous times and his sense of awe and admiration is evident. "There were great men in those days.
