Format: Hardcover
Rembrandt and the Boy Who Drew Dogs: A Story about Rembrandt van Rijn is a children's picturebook set in 1650s Amsterdam, when artist Rembrandt van Rijn is at the peak of his prowess, and his son Titus longs to follow in his father's footsteps. But Rembrandt tells his boy that he is too young to learn how to draw and paint. What is Titus to do? The simple color illustrations bring to life this thoughtful story about father-son bonds, honing one's practice in a chosen craft, and the (sometimes) helpful efforts of man's best friend. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This is a kid-friendly intro to the famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn, in Amsterdam in the 1650s. Blaisdell built a father-son story from the historical fact that Rembrandt's son Titus sketched as a child. In this fictional version, Titus wants to imitate his father, but Rembrandt thinks he is too young. Titus must prove himself. It's a warmhearted story against the lovely backdrop of seventeenth-century Holland. An extensive author's note adds value. Rembrandt and the Boy Who Drew Dogs: A story about Rembrandt van Rijn

Format: Hardcover
A beautiful book! I love the way the story is integrated with colorful modern illustrations juxtaposed with Rembrandt's own moody, emotive work. Blaisdell renders the world of this artist an inviting one by allowing us to view it through the eyes of Rembrandt's young son Titus. On one hand, Titus contends with a household of rambunctious pets who make a mess his father's studio, and on the other, struggles with his desire to win his father's approval. The gentle story-telling brings to life not only the world of a great artist, but the enduring warmth of a son's relationship with his father. It's clear that the mission of the book is to introduce kids to art and the artistic process, and the book definitely succeeds in this. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This book makes Rembrandt relevant and relatable to kids by presenting the artist, in part, from the point of view of his son. The story makes us sympathetic to the son, Titus, and his own artistic development while showing a good view of life in the mid-seventeeth century and cleverly integrating the artist's work into the illustrations. Great for budding artists, young dog lovers, and history buffs alike.

I was looking for something about Rembrandt for an Art in the Classroom session. This is a lovely book, but unfortunately I found it too young and a bit off-topic for my third grade audience. However, based on the sweet story and the gorgeous illustrations, it certainly deserves a spot in the elementary school library, or possibly in an art therapy setting.

This sensitively written book combines colorful illustration, historical information with a storyline that appeals to children and adults alike. You and your children will cheer young Titus on as he gains confidence and learns to draw with the help of his father, the great master, Rembrandt. This is a wonderful gift for the artist in all of us.
