Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4-Cassatt's life and career are presented within the framework of a child's school assignment. Claire discovers the artist first through a postcard, then the Internet, and finally through a family trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The vivid illustrations are a combination of reproductions of Cassatt's work, Claire's cartoon drawings, and a few family photos. Biographical details about Cassatt's family life and relationship with Edgar Degas are simplified to the extreme; however, the author acknowledges that the artist was an intensely private woman and that little is known about her personal life. This slim, exuberant introduction to Cassatt's life and art is more appropriate for general-interest reading than for reports.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book about Mary Cassatt. It is done from the perspective of a child who admires Mary Cassatt paintings and is in the process of learning more about her. She even copies some of her paintings in photography and drawings. Very sweet and helpful in motivating a child about painting or learning more about painters. They no longer have to fear being a nerd, learning about painting is cool!

I use the books in this series in my artroom - K-12 - and this little compilation about the artist is very useful and colourful and a good introduction to Mary Cassatt. Good examples of her work to accompany the text.
