I think this book is one of the best of Julie Merberg's masters series. The art is just gorgeous and every single one contains a child or children, most with a parent, so kids will probably be drawn to this one. My 2 1/2 yr old daughter loves it and loves looking at all the paintings of children. Sweet portraits and great writing! One of my personal favorites.

This is a wonderful book. The art chosen is very well done and appeals to children of all ages. I can see using this for years and only wish I had bought it when my girls were toddlers. I will be using this in an art study with my 3.5 and 5 yr old daughters. I had also bought Baby Love, another book of Casssatt art but highly recommend this book over the Baby Love.The art pictures are very bright and engaging. The verse with each picture is really cute. What more can I say? I love this book and plan to get the others in the series. It was beyond my expectations and that is so nice!

My six month old loves this book, and it doesn't show any signs of becoming passe. The color reproductions of Cassatt's work are wonderful!

We discovered this series last month during a visit to reading circle at the library. I had no idea such fine books existed for a baby!

This particular one features 10 beautiful paintings by Mary Cassatt depicting family life (mother / daughter, father / son, mother / baby). The gentle rhythm of the words used to describe each painting is very soothing. My 10 month old loves sitting with this, holding it, flipping the pages, and just staring at the photos. He's not usually as enthused over looking at the photos (usually he just chews our other books) - but he seems to find this one, and the one about Monet, fascinating.

For homeschoolers out there, this series would be a great introduction to picture study as well! As an adult, I even love looking at, and familiarizing myself with, the art depicted in these little books.

I am an elementary school art teacher and I got this book to read to my students when teaching them about Mary Cassatt. It is a very sweet, colorful, whimsical board book that the students really enjoyed. I taught them about Mary Cassatt before reading, and I asked the kindergarteners why it might be called "Quiet Time with Cassatt" and they answered that her paintings felt calm and quiet! So smart :)

I liked the variety of pictures, it was not limited to her mother-and-child paintings, but it also showed sisters, father and son, etc., which prevented students without mothers from feeling left out. I also liked how the board book was able to lie completely flat as I held it up, it made it very easy for the students to get a good look at each painting and also see the fun, curvy, large-font words set against colorful backgrounds.

I am very satisfied with this book and plan on buying more from this series.

Quiet Time with Cassatt weaves a sweet story through some of Impressionist Artist Mary Cassatt's works. My two year old loves these books, my nine year old likes to look at these books. The back includes the titles and location of masterpiece.

I liked this book so much I wanted to keep it for myself! My daughter who lives outside of the country told me that my grand daughter loves this and a couple other of the mini masters books. The baby is only 18 mos but my daughter knows a fine arts fan and can use the books later to explain the details of the paintings so this will be good for an older child also.

This is one of my 17 month old's favorite books to read, especially before bed. Mary Cassatt is one of my favorite artists and I have a big coffee table book of her other works. This is a perfect version for a baby and my daughter loves the pictures. We also bought the Mini Masters boxed set which she also loves. Since this book features a lot of pictures of young children and babies she calls it her babies book. We are trying to teach her the name of the artists and for Cassat she says "Kash-at". Her favorite picture is the one of the child being bathed by her mother.
