George Gershwin (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Composers) Paperback – March 1, 1995

From School Library Journal
Gr 2-4--In these two cheerful books, Venezia takes the same approach he used in ``Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists'' series (Childrens). The material is conveyed in an upbeat, if slightly irreverent, manner, allowing children to see the composers as real people. Black-and-white and full-color photographs and period art reproductions appear throughout, in addition to numerous colorful cartoons. The purpose may be to parallel the fine art and music of each book's time period, but the author does not expound on this concept. These slim volumes are more visually appealing than either Barbara Mitchell's America, I Hear You (Carolrhoda, 1987) or Ann Rachlin's Tchaikovsky (Barron's, 1993), but they contain much less information.

I re ordered this book after I thought I had left it at another school. I am happy to have two copies now and I read it with my younger students.Published 7 months ago by karengersh
